I just checked on Mrs. Cranky Pants and the eggs. One egg has hatched. Isn't it a cute little thing? She still has four that have not hatched, hopefully they hatch soon so we can move her and the babies into the nursery(-:
A little history about Mrs. C.P.---
She insisted she was going to set on eggs,(not hers, but that is another story),so I had to collect her a few from the white leghorn hen. We have two white leghorn roosters as you may remember. They were dumped on the road and we rescued them. So I guess they are fathers now too.(-: So far mom and baby are doing well in the 106 degree heat this afternoon.(-: I was able to convince Mrs. Cranky Pants to let me take a picture of her and her little one. She was not happy, but she allowed one photo. I wonder if I can sell the picture to People Magazine?
Update as of 7:30pm PT. One more chick has hatched. There are still 3 left.
Update as of 8-14-08 The other three eggs did not hatch so I guess they were duds. So Mrs. Cranky Pants has just two little chicks to care for. She is very happy!
