Fifi's babies have hatched!
It was actually a pretty dismal hatch- only 2 of the 8 eggs hatched. It's my first attempt at hatching mailed eggs. Shorty is sitting on some more though and I'm trying my hand at incubating in the house (my own little summer science project!). We'll see what happens in about two and a half weeks.The grey baby is a blue and the black/yellow baby is a black. They are true ameraucanas (a recognized pure breed) from the Garners in Georgia. They will be blue egg layers. Shorty is sitting on blue eggs from Cree Farms. They are quite lovely. More of the Cree Farms eggs are in the incubator, as well as some random eggs from my girls that I'm using to test failure rates of shipped versus local vs my hatching abilities. We'll see what happens.
