ok sparkles laid her first egg on the 12th so i was expecting her to lay another one on my birthday the 14th well she never did so i thought hmm thats strange then today wich is the 16th she laid the 2nd egg but then i remembered the last clutch that salt and pepper laid there was a 4 day break between the 1st and 2nd egg as well i was just wondering if this is rare or what

ok during the night and this morning 2 eggs have hatched so we should see 4 hatch out of the 5 reason i say 4 is one egg is a very dark grey so i expect it is DIS but we should see one chick of the 2 that are left be lutino unless the DIS was the lutino

a disaster avoided

i was watching tv and i hear one of sparkles chicks squaking it was fairly loud for a one day old chick so i checked the box and i could only see one chick i thought to myself i no 2 hatched so then i thought the last 3 clutches there has always been one chick on the floor of the cage so i checked the cage floor and i was right so i picked jumper up and to my amazement there was nothing wrong with jumper so i put jumper back with much difficulty because stretch was very protective of the box but i was able to get jumper in ther box as soon as sparkles saw jumper she tucked him under her to warm her up

My hen Silverado laid really weird too: #1 Dec 31, #2 Jan 2, #3 Jan 7, #4 Jan 9, #5 Jan 14, #6 Jan 16 and #7 Jan 18.

I was also wondering if this was normal. Her first egg was really small and she tossed it from the box. So far 3 babies have hatched with another due on the 8th. Is it only your one hen or have you seen others? I am really curious now/
