Yes - four chicks have now been transferred to the brooder box under the lamp. Another one had come out of the shell overnight - but today is their due date so I am not giving up on the other eggs just yet.
There is a batch of Brown Sussex eggs on eBay - I am bidding on them as they very rarely come up for sale and as I have said before, I need another strain of Brown Sussex for my Brussbar plans, so I am hoping that I will win the auction and have a good result! I'll know if I have won them in about three quarters of an hour, so not long to wait on that...
