When I checked on Trixy this morning, there was a new little arrival! Light brown and incredibly fluffy, I only caught a quick look before Trixy got in the way. By this point we had hatched one millefleur and two partridge bantams. The question was, would we get anymore?
After work, we did another check and were delighted to find another millefleur chick had hatched. With four out, there might be time for one or two more. But Trixy is now on Day 23 and there is only so long a broody will continue to sit on eggs once she has hungry beaks to feed.
Two millefleurs and two partridge bantams (I think one is a blue one which I am very excited about!). Even without anymore hatching, I am counting this as a success!
