    I had a raccoon family visiting the farm that took all but three eggs out of my nests. The three eggs were cold by the time I got there, but I knew they only had a few days before hatching, so I placed them in the incubator. Two hatched! One is obviously out of a blue hen, but the other; I'm not so sure. I have one blue slate tom, three blue slate hens, two lavender hens, one bourbon red, and one spanish black. I really like the crossed chicks that are out of the red hen. Anyway, this chick has the markings like a spanish black chick (which I thought it was at first) but she is very dark brown and black, instead of black - she should be very pretty. I suspect that she is out of my spanish black hen - would you agree?
