I am soo excited one of my free range hens just hatched our first chicks. She had 11 eggs 10 hers and one hamburg egg I put with them before my hamburg girls died. And they all hatched every one of them. They are alittle over a week old now and they all seem to be doing great. Our big RIR roo that was my grams Bday present is also free range and he has taken it on as his job to protect them. Which is just wonderful I think. I really hope they all survive. My son thinks it is just so cool to have chicks running around the yard. And that makes it even more "cool" to me.
