This one is early too! Hatched this evening and wasn't due until Sunday. She has one more egg. Started with 6. One got kicked out of nest, 2 didn't develop and one died half way through. Hoping for a second chick :jumpy:

One more hatching end of next week. I think I will give my last two broodies some eggs. I feel bad for them.

Not a great video but had to share. This little bugger has been doing this all day 🤣. I've never seen a chick do this before. Maybe because it's a Bantam with a standard mom? It's a very adventurous chick.

Another new mom today. Pebbles was broody most of last summer. I couldn't see that again this year. She's got 2 more eggs pipped.
