Well, as of this morning we are now down to 2 hens and one rooster. I gave my neighbor his trio and kept our main rooster Longfeather and the two broody hens. The hens have chicks they have hatched plus some I have hatched. Right now total of hatched chicks is 52. I still have some in incubator and they will be the last. We have built another coop for chicks that will go to the ducks and geese when we get them.

Good news is we have lost none of the hatchlings this year. We have 24 in the first chick pen. I have 16 here still in the house waiting for the other coop to be finally set up today. One hen has five chicks and the other I am not sure but I took out two and I saw one she just hatched. I have no idea how many of her eggs will hatch or of those I collected last time. Well, hubby said to hatch alot, he got what he asked for and then some. 🙂
