Well its the eve of my first little chicky hatching, due tomorrow i couldn't resist the temptation to check on it tonight. Its a solo egg under a first time mum to be. I could hear it chirping away, and there was a little crackin the egg so hopefully by morning there should be a bubby chicken in the family :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: my only concern is that she is about a meter up off the ground on the top row of nest box's. Might have to temp her into moving into a cumfy box at ground level

don't try to move her too soon, put a little lip on the box so the chickabee can't fall out, but you would need to leave h er for a good 24hrs after the chick has hatched before she is really ready to move


how exciting for you, good luck!! :thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs: :catch:
