    I just went out to feed all the critters and found a surprise [​IMG]

    I have one broody hen that has been sitting and they were due this week. I always put her some food and water right at her nest so she can have food n water when she wants. She is one who won't hardly budge while sitting.....

    I heard a chirp chirp!! I looked and there is one hatched ~~ I left them alone because we had an unexpected freeze last night and it is chilllllllly this morning. He looks to have just dried off.

    Hoping more hatch! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    My son got in there one day and I found 2 of her eggs scattered out on the coop floor so I didn't know if he had damaged any of the others..... [​IMG]

    This is my second batch she has hatched for me since I got her. Last one was in the dead of winter and she hatched out 5 chicks. When I got her over a year ago, she had 2 week old chicks then with her.

    I'm so excited....can you tell? LOL

    Well, this morning it is still just one chick. I am starting to think this is going to be her only one. One is better than a zero hatch though I guess.

    I will go out and take a pic right now.......
