Our first chick of the year.

Our first chick has finally hatched - after a couple of weeks of infertile eggs, it looks like the season is finally kicking off (albeit, a little slowly) We put 10 red silkie eggs, 3 cream legbar and 7 pekin eggs in our incubator 29 days ago. Only 5 eggs were fertile (all the pekins) and this morning we found this lonely little partridge pekin.

We have some more eggs in the incubator that are fertile so she won't be alone for long. Hopefully the next lot of eggs will be all fertile, including our 1st 2 partridge orpington eggs.
