First hatch in the house, yet more Welsh harlequins. 9 in all, 3 of which I’ve kept for myself here in my new home : )
One of the first to hatch..not the plan!) – and no, I didn’t name them!.
Some of the 9, a few already sitting on the electric hen. How do they all know to do that?!
The oldest 6 as they were leaving (that was a clean puppy pad when the first one went in!)
My 3 – Jenny on the left, Jacky in the middle and Jilly on the right ( so I think now that Jacky and Jilly are both boys, not the plan!) – and no, I didn’t name them!
Nearly 3 weeks old and enjoying a splash in the new sink!
24 eggs arrived through the post from two different sellers, 12 perfect eggs and… a mess : ( 4 eggs of the other lot broken and 1 egg that had started to develop (and would now be dead). The seller gave me a part refund, though not their fault that special delivery wasn’t as ‘special’ as it should have been. I then managed to break another egg – aaaaaarrrrggghhhhhhh!!!
So… only 12+6 eggs in the incy instead of 24
By day 25, 1 of the 12 and 0 of the 6 had been removed.
18-22 September 9 hatched, 3 of the 11 and incredibly all 6 of the 6 (very unusual)
