The first three chicks emerge from under the golden feathers of mama hen. Being the good hen that she is, she's not going to let me get a look under her to see how many of the 15 eggs have hatched. This can wait for another day. As you can tell, the chicks are not yellow like Buff Orpington chicks should be. These three are Black Australorp chicks. Hoping there are some Orpingtons that hatched as well. I will keep you posted as more chicks should hatch under hen #2 this weekend. Please, post a photo of your chicks in the comments. Would love to see them!
