Momma hen had them out teaching them how to look for food. Out of 8 eggs 7 hatched. One was developed but dead inside egg. The small black one to the right was the late hatcher. It's a silkie an was very weak when it came out. I had to put her back under momma for warmth. She seems to be doing good so far. The hen is around 2 years or so and her first time going broody. I was in the yard tonight and she pecked on the door until I let her out. She took the chicks for a stroll through the garden area and scratched through the leaves for an hour or so and then took them back into coop.
