All 3 have hatched so she's a happy girl. I've been trying to leave them alone for the most part but this one keeps coming out to inspect me when it hears my voice 😂. Like any OEGB chick I've ever known.

Re: Somebody talk me out of this...

Two chicks out and one working on it as we speak. Pretty sure the two hatched are little girls-little chipmunks with defined stripes and eye-liner. So far mom is being very good with them. Always worried about first-timers

Re: Somebody talk me out of this...

I have 5 sitting 😳
3 have eggs and two are "sympathy sitters"...like labor coaches 😂. They've all done really well. I've had fans on them and loads of cold treats. Ellie-May is the only standard sitting. The little girls are not bothered by heat at all.

Added heat speeding thinks up ? ;)
They are Bantam eggs. Every time I have incubated them in an incubator they have been early. But when my Bantam hens sit on them they are 20-21 days. I'm wondering if the added heat and a Standard hen maybe?

Re: Coronavirus - how much do you worry ?

Simcoe County's mask law comes into effect on Monday. Our employer has instructed us that face shields do not replace masks. They can be worn but only in conjunction with a face mask. Once the decision was made about mandatory face coverings I noticed an immediate increase in the number of people we...

Ellie-May is talking to her eggs this morning. Pretty sure I heard a peep peep peep back. They're not due to hatch until Monday

Re: Rain

We had a deluge late yesterday and lighter rain through the evening. I believe we are supposed to get a lot of rain over the next week.
