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

Oh Wow! I wish I had a couple broodies! It sounds like it's so much fun to watch the Mom with their chicks...
