    YAY!!!!!!v my first chick finally hatched!!!!!!! [​IMG]
    The eggs were/are being incubated by a broody 6 month old SEX LINK HEN!! i was SO surprised!! she is being a great mama[​IMG]
    the chicks will probably be a mix of lavender orpington/leghorn OR bantam cochin frizzle/leghorn!! And 2 duck eggs :D
    Just wanted to share that with y'all :D
    have a great Sunday!!

    P.S isn't it really unusual for a sex link to go broody? and a 6 month old?!! her feet are still BRIGHT yellow. [​IMG]
