Chick hatching update

Three Gold Partridge Orpingtons have hatched today although I didn't really think any would hatch until tomorrow - but they have, so I'm not complaining! I hope that more will hatch overnight and we'll have a count up in the morning; there were 12 eggs in that incubator, so we may have up to 9 more. The other incubator is warming the Brown Sussex eggs - and they are due tomorrow, but one has started to pip at the shell tonight, so again, there may be news to report there in the morning too! Excitement all round here at the prospect of hatching the Brown Sussex as they are SO rare....
