Our First Baby




So at just about 5:15pm tonight we had our first hatch ... the day has seemed to drag on and on but now it is all worth it.  Here is a look at our first Olive Egger ... mommy is a French Black Copper Marans and daddy is an Easter Egger.


Our first baby arrive just before 5:15 tonight ... it is an Olive Egger (mom is a French Black Copper Marans and daddy is an Easter Egger) ... it is doing good so far ... it has rolled all the other eggs around and in desperate need of a companion!
 
Well, I know the picture is not very pretty, but I'm sure I will be posting more as the week ends and the weekend progresses ... but hey it was only a minute or two old when this was taken and breaking out of the shell is a lot of hard work!
 
Well after 2 hours its already starting to look better.   Here's a new picture!
 
Its been 2 hours and its drying nicely.  I think it will be pretty!
