Chick update #2!

All five of the fertile eggs hatched!!! I now have the cutest little group of babies in my laundry room brood box! Three of them have markings like their barnvelder mother but with feathered feet like daddy. One is darker with feathered feet, hopefully will look like daddy. And one is marked like it's mother the americauna with the feathered feet like daddy! So all five have feathered feet! I can't wait to see what these little guys look like when they get bigger. To my husbands horror, I have cleaned and reloaded the incubator with 13 eggs. I think I may need another chicken coop ☺


  1. Good, good, good! You did better than my last attempts!
    They will be good sized by the time winter hits and maybe lay some eggs in the spring.

  2. COngrats!!! Can't wait to see some pics of the new little fuzzy butts!
