New chick has hatched!
It's January but low & behold the Partridge Rock hen has hatched a chick! Setting through all the snow & ice! The photo is Billy the vet listening to her eggs last Febuary when she attempted to hatch eggs but failed. We wondered if her Febuary setting was predicting an early spring. We had one! We're hoping setting in January is predicting an even earlier one. Below is the new chick just starting to peck it's way out.
