I should have mentioned, send 36 Columbian and 36 Blue Columbian x Blue
Got back 25 Columbian and 24 Col x Blue
75 % fertility is pretty good for Wyandottes, bit surprised they were so even.
I am pretty sure these chicks hatched yesterday, they spent 3 hours running from water to food and back, before they started to slow down and get some rest.
I liked Vian's comment, "I guess we will be lucky to get a sandwich for supper tonight", DH wasn't even that lucky, had to get his own supper:)
between one batch in the basement and the other in the barn brooder nobody accept the chicks are getting regular meals for a while
