Baby Bantam

One of our bantam hens went broody recently, so just for fun we asked my Dad if he could maybe get us a few fertilized eggs for her to sit on so the girls could see our little bantam hens become Mamas. :D He got us a mix of 6 fertilized hamburg and seabright bantam eggs from my cousin Jim.

Yesterday one of the eggs hatched. :) We're hoping at least a few of the others will hatch too since both our hens are both intent to be a Mama to the one lone chick. They both cram their butts into one nestbox to protect their baby. LOL
