It's been a busy month so I never made it back to post. We had a broody BO sitting on 12 eggs originally. The count: 1 bad egg 1 egg missing from the coop 2 eggs made it to about 19 days and never hatched out, never pipped 1 egg started to hatch and died 1 hatched out completely but found it just laying there, dead 6 SUCCESSFUL eggs hatched ------------------ 6 healthy chicks one night...the next day, 1 was just gone...no trace. ------------------ Now watching the 5 that are left and doing well. They're a BO/Ameraucana mix. They all have an offwhite coloring with striped wings. Some are a little more brown/golden. It's amazing to watch how quickly they grow! They're almost a month old now and starting to feather out. Thanks to everyone who guided me along as we went through our first hatch. I don't know that I'll ever do it again but it was a great experience!
