Speak of the Devil....

No sooner do I post that nothing is going on than I discover that the black hen has hatched out two chicks. Being up in the hayloft, they would fall down and die if I didn't remove the whole nest, so I cleaned out the rabbit hutch and gave her a nice cozy nest to hatch out the others in - if there are any others. She has six more eggs. I'll keep y'all updated - I know you're on pins and needles!

You should *never* let pins and needles around a baby chicken!

those two chicks were the only ones that made it. It was kind of gross: thee were three eggs that had fully developed, dead chicks in them. She must have let the eggs get cold quite recently.
