We have a chick!


One of the hens was being really broody, meaning she was sitting on everyones eggs/staying on the nest all day. So we decided to let her try and hatch some chicks for us. We have two rosters, so nature takes its course, and wahla! Baby chick! This one hatched yesterday, there's one hatching today too, and she's sitting on 7-8 eggs. We have no idea if they will all hatch or not, but we'll have at least two! Oh and we put all green eggs under her since we don't have as many of that kind of chicken. If this baby is a hen, she'll start laying her own eggs in about Sept.
