2 chicks hatched today and of course it went down to 28 last night and will tonight too. Brought Mom and the whole nest box in and put them in a cage. Of course when I took the chicks out to feed them she got off the eggs and sat over them so in the incubator the rest of the eggs went. I added a few of Patches eggs and think the other Ameraucana laid in there too so probably a week before all should hatch out if they are going too. Have 2 more broodies sitting on Patches eggs as well. No pics yet
I see muffs on these 2 so they are lg fowl Silver Ameraraucana. just had 1 hatch. Think it is a Araucana one of Patches babies. Very robust chick making lots of noise and moving around the incubator. Pic after it dries out before moving to Mom and the other chicks
