Just had to pop in for a few minutes to show some pics of my first incubation of the year. The chicks incubated from the eggs that the broody Cochin got off of on day 18. There will be time for me soon to get back to all my friends here, that I miss so much, just been too busy studying.
Just thought I would share a couple of pictures taken a couple of days ago, on a bad hair day, smiling. Friendly little chicks, a Cochin pullet and cockeral, an Australorpe (now I am thinking it is a cockeral, not pullet -- wing feather sexing was wrong, eeeks!!!), and a Light Brahma pullet (pretty sure its a pullet). The chicks love to hang out with us and really like to cuddle on my lap. They are still in our basement suite, just over 5 weeks old, still not a single bit of smell, pretty anal about keeping the smelly stuff not there, smiling. Enjoy. Have that wonderful day, a most awesome life, with greatest of health. Cindi

Watch the eyes!!! That Light Brahma gal is the most docile and friendly of them all, she always flies up onto my shoulder
