Hatchlings and such....

So today I went out to the coop and found Henny Penny here off her eggs chasing her first hatchling around because he had escaped the pen and couldn't get back in. 

Her other eggs were cold and unattended and nearby I found a cold and nearly lifeless new hatchling.  I scooped him up in a towel and gave him to Jacob to warm up.  I gathered the rest of the eggs, the warming light and the new hatchling and we headed into the house.  Thanks to the 30 gallon galvanized tub, the eggs and the new hatchlings are warm.  Henny Penny is taking care of her baby and he now has a step to get into the cage, lol. 

One of the eggs has a crack in it and you can hear pecking coming from inside!

The kids have named her Cuddles cause we needed to cuddle her and keep her warm.
