7 chicks

From thinking the 8 eggs were dead to finding 7 chicks - what a good day for expanding our flock of chickens. The chicks are cream legbars. It seems we have 4 males and 3 females. The males have a yellow patch on the head when they hatch.

17 days to go now before the eggs in the large incubator hatch.

well done, I had a similar experiance a few years ago around day 12 of incubating, the incubator stopped working so I wrapped it in towels and used a desk lamp until until I could get another incubator I think it was about 6 hours a very stressfull time but we had a good hatch rate
