    I posted on another post, but here goes. She a bantam friz hatched 5 3 standard and 2 bantam friz cross. I think with a Del. roo. anyhow one got smushed the others seem to be doing fine it is interesting to see them follow mommas lead. I don't' expect them to grow as fast as brooder chicks.
    She in a room off the garage and it's warm with a heat light and oil heater. Temp is 60.
    One egg to go but I think she's l9st interest so I may aake it and put it in a incu and see.

    I have but will never do it again.

    All the chicks died, and it was basically a horrible experience.
