Our broody, Olga, has been sitting on a clutch that started hatching the day before yesterday. She now has 6 beautiful chicks. Some are biologically hers, others belong to other hens in the flock, but our mottled java is the sire of the whole lot so they all look like mottled java chicks! Well, the 2-day-old chicks are starting to become active, and the weather has warmed up significantly in the last 48 hours, as well, so Olga has been getting off the nest with the hatchlings and showing them where the food and water is, though they're not venturing more than 2-3 feet away from the nest. We noticed there were still 5 unhatched eggs in the nest. Three of them were cold, but two were still warm & one had pipped! We tapped gently on both of them, and both eggs peeped back! Alas, though, she was off the nest with the hatchlings more than she was on it, so we brought the two eggs in the house and put them in the incubator and hoped for the best. Well, we are using an LG and are doing a fairly dry hatch and still early in incubation in the house, so I was worried about the humidity. I saw a thread here recently that gave me a really good idea... yep, I took that pipped egg and stuck it in my bra! Walked around with it for about 45 minutes to an hour, and I asked Farmer Lew to hold it on his belly under his shirt while I cooked dinner. About 5 minutes later, he came running into the kitchen and exclaimed that it really tickles when it zips! Little bugger was just seriously hatching in my husband's shirt, right on his belly! I finished cooking dinner, and in the interim, Linda (gryeyes) came by for supper. Just as I was serving it, lo and behold, the egg hatched and a VIGOROUS and LOUD little chickie came out and greeted us! He/she hatched about 2-1/2 hours ago. It is in a cage with an EcoGlow, and it's already got "The Zoomies" and is trying to get out. May I present to you for your viewing pleasure, "Li'l Bit", the chick my husband LITERALLY hatched on his warm, sweaty belly while I cooked dinner this evening!
