Here’s Millie and her six little bundles of joy. She still has two blue eggs and one brown egg under her. I’m thinking at this point they might not hatch. I hate it, but there’s nothing I can do about it. If they don’t hatch soon Millie will take her little family of six out to free range and that will be that.
Here are three of the four French black copper Maran chicks. I couldn’t get the last Maran chick to come out from under Millie and I wasn’t about to drag it out kicking and screaming, so I got a picture of its three sister. I’m saying sisters, because I would prefer hens and I’m using the power of positive thinking. I’ll let you know how that works out for me.
These two hatched from the blue eggs. They are called Easter eggers. They are not a specific breed, but they do carry the gene that causes them to lay beautiful blue eggs. That is if they’re females. Once again they are females……the power of positive thinking. I would almost bet that the grey one is a cockerel. He hatched almost a full day before all the others, and
he she acts like she owns the place. Plus it looks just like its father.
Do you see the resemblance, or is it just me.
Plus, talk about attitude! When
he she found out she was getting paid in chick food for today’s photo shot……she stormed off the set.
Millie still has two blue eggs under her. I hope they hatch.
Millie’s such a good mother.
You did good Millie. Another Spring that you brought new life to the farm. Thanks girl.
