It's been a learning curve and I'm not always terribly successful. I was only able to put six eggs under her this time and four hatched. Still, four is better than none and if I'm lucky, at least two might be hens. I'm needing more hens, I have a bit of a motley crew of "divas" at the moment and eggs are a bit few and far between.
Every few hours I rush down to the pen and do a quick head count. My heart is in my throat as I count "one, two, three and four." So far so good, they're all looking robust and they are such cute little balls of yellow fluff.
Welcome to the world little "one, two, three and four"!
