Broody Watch 12.1 – Baby Picspam

Well, all but one of the eight remaining eggs has hatched.  It might just be time for some picspam of Abby and her Wee Ones.  🙂

And while I was there taking the last pictures, Little Dude and I got to witness the last baby Sulmtaler being born.  🙂

Still waiting on the last Easter Egg to pip and hatch. I hope it does, because that would be awesome to have 2 of them. 🙂

Broody Watch 11.2 – The First Baby

Abby’s first baby of this hatch!  Came out of an Easter Egger egg.  I’ve never seen one still wet before.  

Is it supposed to be so dark?  

I’m still wet behind the ears, can I go back to momma now?

The choc orpington that was pipped this morning still hasn’t hatched yet but it probably won’t been too far behind this one.  

There are four others pipped now that I could see.  Not sure what they are, I only scanned briefly with my eyes while watching this one snuggle up to Momma.  

I wonder how many we will have tomorrow morning?

Chocolate Orpington (also on right)

The babies are coming!!  The babies are coming!!!

LOL I have no life.

 (Actually,I have a very busy life right now. I had plans to go see my in-laws today and drop off eggs to them (with other things), take my son to the park, pick up a small bag of chick starter for these little ones, we have company coming on Friday, and I have about 3 weeks to help my son get ready for his first 4-H Roud Up.)

I spent some time this morning reshaping the nests in the maternity suite so Abby had fresh straw and a clean area.  Claire really timed her abandonment of her Littles perfectly so Abby could use either side of the maternity suite.
