The hatch of the Gold-laced Orpingtons is over - we have four live birds. This is rather disappointing and makes them expensive, but that is the chance you have to take.
We started off with 24 eggs, and one exploded last week. One hatched on Wednesday and the other three made it out of the shells between Thursday and Friday. Another started to come out of the shell this morning, five days after the first. That one didn't make it, I'm afraid.
