10. One hatched! Yesterday we got a tan with brown striped chick!
Today we have 1hen sitting on 4 eggs, 1 on 2 eggs and the chick. It is very teeny tiny and peepy. Tomorrow is day 21. If they don't hatch by Monday, I'm taking the rest of hte eggsaway and letting the 2 biddies raise the one chick.

It is very exciting. I am used to several day old chickes from the feed store, but a new one is, well, egg sized. Teeny tiny
