    My hens' first hatchlings are out of the nest already. 16 made it out of 19. The last three that didn't hatch; the hen abandoned. I had to open them to see for myself, they never mae it past the first couple of weeks. So I guess that's a pretty good hatch rate for the two momma hens' first time. It's so much fun to watch the hens try to keep up with all of them running everywhere.

    Not real sure. Hubby calls them game chickens. But I got some 23 more just like 'em in the bator. And 15 Dorkings incubating too. Along with some 12-14 quail. I think we got a few birds around the house. [​IMG]
