After 3 long weeks the chicks are finally hatching. Six eggs went under a chicken, and 4 look to be fertile. Today was D-Day but even then this little one took us by surprise. She/He must have hatch out in the early hours of this morning
I tok until after lunchtime for a brother/sister to manage to join the party. Here's a freshly hatched picture.
Meanwhile the speedy chicken, now affectionately nicknamed Cav after cyclist Mark Cavendish, was already showing off!
All fluffed up, and ready for fun, I think this one is going to be trouble!
That's definitely the look of a worn out Mum!
More pictures of all the chicks when they hatch, probably won't be until tomorrow morning.
