Three eggs

Above are three of the egg types we use; (L to R) French Copper Maran, Wyandotte, Araucana.

 

Rhode Sussex egg

We also use Light Sussex / Rhode Island Red cross eggs (cream to light brown).

 

Araucana chick

The blue egg from the Araucana gives these stripy chicks (the one on his back is about a minute old and has yet to stand up).

 

Araucana adult chickens

The Araucanas will then grow into these adults.

 

Hatching

Hatching day (in the incubator). We have quickly taken the clear lid off just to take the photos. The chicks live in the incubator until they have completely dried out (about 24 hours).
