They started to pip at around noon April, 29 2013.
Red has been a great broody much to my dismay because she is our best layer and we have had to buy eggs lately :-/
Lets' meet the new ones...
3 from the Young Farm hatched first. 2 easter-eggers and one from a barred rock or a welsummer looking hen. I call them the 3 amigos.
They were out and about while the others took time to escape.
The others came one by one over the next day.
April 30 - by the time I put the ladies to bed, I counted 6 confirmed hatches. With possibly a bout 4 more different voices under there.
Here is some video from April 30 of the 3 amigos and red getting jealous of their fame and stealing the shot.
Lets meet the individuals so far.
From the Young Farm 2 ameraucana mixes and 2 mystery mixes
The 3 Amigos: They were the 1st 3 to hatch out and they stick together.
The 8 from Tucker Farm
Names are subject to change. I just needed something to tell them apart from each other.
Sexing will have to be determined when one starts to crow. I tried the wing feather method but they all have 2 rows (indicating female on some breeds). There has got to be a boy in there somewhere.
