well my chickens should have hatched the other day but only one survived! There were only 3 that were fertile. The mother hen smashed 4 with her bug clumsy feet! we started with 12.
I JUST HOPE IT IS A GIRL ! it is a soft golden tanny colour, very cute and soft here she is.this is not very true to colour at all. I might try for a better pic tommorow if the sun is out again.

And here she is just popping out of the shell a few hours earlier. You can see her beak just poking out. I just had to go and look and not wait till the afternoon . She actally has a dark stripe down the centre of the head but not much other colour.
