The Miracle of Life

Betty has hatched one chick so far. She is still sitting and I hope at least one more hatches. We don’t want the single chick syndrome again. I got one picture. It’s been raining for days. She (we are hopeful here) is a Lavender Orpington.

  1. Cute...we had a hen named Black Betty for a while. (Now every black hen is a "black Betty" :-)

  2. More will come. Don't worry. Over the course of 3 to 4 days they will all hatch. She may come off the eggs to teach the hatched chicks a thing or two, but she will return to the eggs if they are viable. Yay! Congrats!
