Aww baby chickens!

For the first time since she hatched the eggs, the mama hen was off the nest so I could get a better look at her babies. They aren't really all hers, but she thinks they are.

She started out with 16 eggs under her and it looks like all but 3 hatched. Of those that hatched, one or two were green eggs, which means those will be at least half Easter Egger, Araucuana, or whatever you call them.

There are several different colors of chick -- yellow, black, yellow with a few black flecks, and a couple that are several tones of brown or red.
