    We had two of our Buff Orpington chicks hatch this morning. These eggs are the ones who sat in an unplugged bator all night during their second week in the bator. The temp was 66 for most of the night. What are the chances? They still made it! I'll post pics as soon as they are placed in their brooder!

    I wonder if they're pure Buff Orpingtons. The moms are, the dads could be buff orpington, RIR or White leghorn.
