Indian Game cross chicks
Twenty days since the eggs were set under the broody Indian Game there is the sound of peeping coming from under her....some chicks have hatched.
Apart from knowing the date they were due I guessed yesterday they were close to hatching. In the morning when I opened the door to check all was well, I was greeted with a meaningful growl, normally I just get 'the look'. Also for the past two days she hasn't left the nest.
How many will hatch and survive ? I will just have to wait a little longer to find out.
Seen so far:
10 am: 3 chicks :- 2 yellow 1 black
4.00 pm: 5 chicks :- 3 yellow 1 black 1 yellow & black
8.00 pm: 6 possibly 7, 4 maybe 5 mostly yellow, 2 black
