Hatching Hen

Posted by Picasa

Today I am quietly observing my broody hen, a Partridge Rock, who has been sitting on a clutch of eggs that is starting to peep. The first chick is trying to work its way out of the shell. I can hear it peeping from within its shell; hopefully is will have enough energy to emerge, hopefully the other eggs will hatch out soon, hopefully instincts will kick in and the hen will care for her brood.
