new baby and hopefully more soon. This is one out of 5 Araucana eggs, going to give her until Monday to see if more hatch. These are from the tufted birds so not sure if I want to check the eggs or not. The tufted gene is leathal and many die in the shell or soon after hatching. This ones doesn't look like it has tufts to me. Have 2 more broodys on a few eggs each and and bator full along with some Heritage Delaware I managed to get my hands on

DonnaB I can hardly wait to see more pictures. This is an awesome breed of chicken, and I particularly like yours. I like all the chickens, but the Araucana seems exceptional.

I do love them so. That's why I don't want to check the eggs in case one is dead inside but I do need to check the fertility. No more hatched yet.. Have more due the 24th & 27th under broodys

Thank you I am so excited. I have more in lock down now. Was hoping for a early hatch so my grandson could see one hatch out while they are here. But alas no such luck and Momma called and is going to come get them to go get a Christmas Tree
