Finally we had some success with hatching. In summer the temperature broke all records and they eggs were too hot, then there was the case of the mother hen dieing on the nest and Rockie 4 the miracle chick hatched. Then while we were away in November we had record cold weather and the only chick to hatch was Buddy. This time the weather has been record warm but perfect for hatching. We got 8 out of 9 hatching.
This is Snowball and her gang of Scallywags.

This is Cher she is not looking so good. She is taking a needed break from her nest of 10 eggs. She is doing a good job so if the boys did their job than we should get a good hatch near the end of this month. Normally she has a pretty fancy hair do but no time for maintenance I guess lol
We went to auction and picked up our money for the last 4 we sold. We got 10 bucks each so that is ok since they were older and that is what we paid for new layers this spring.

Spike, two old hens and one Nigon went to the auction. Not sure what we got for them. Makes more room in the hen house which we will need. Cher is sitting on 10 eggs. So more baby chicks around the 23rd of this month. We still don't know for sure if any more of the Little Rascals are roosters, we hope not.
