    [​IMG]. I'm not a hatching person but as far as brooding go it's basically just like with chicks except for the fact they LOVE water and will try to swim in there waterer if there is enough room.

    Beautiful babies!!! Congrats! I can't wait for mine to come! I got them from two separate breeders here on BYC whose flocks originated from Holderreads. Oh I can't wait!
