All seven chicks hatched by 7:00pm yesterday! We have one Black Australorp, three Buff Orpingtons, and three mixes.
I’d read that once you hear the chicks peeping in their shells, they’ll hatch within 24 hours. I went to check and see if I could hear them, and I could! Out of curiosity, I lifted Honeybun up to see if they’d pipped. There was a little black chick flopping around under her!
One of the chicks hatched in my hand. So precious.
On Saturday they moved to their broody coop. Honeybun is glad to have grass to scratch in.
The chicks are dry and fluffy, and the little family is in their new coop. It’s all good.
