This is my 1st broody! My broody was sitting on 12 eggs and so far 8 chicks have hatched. Today is only day 20.


Crazy day! Chicks hatching 8 so far, My Easter Egger laid her first egg today and a hawk attacked my rooster (he seems to be fine) when I walked out side the hawk and my rooster were both laying on the ground. The Hawk is half the size of my BO

Poor Lance

Lance is a trooper. He is my alpha and after his fight with the hawk was still doing his duties. He is an awesome rooster. I hope I have him a long time. I told him I need more babies from him. lol

Okay so it looks like we have 10 babies that hatched. So my question is will the other 2 hatch tomorrow? Today is offically day 21.

Yes it was a lot in one day! But Lance is doing great! He is himself!
