This is as good a photo that I could get - Amelia hatched her 4 chicks. I put her and the chicks into one of the tractors so that the other hens wouldn't pick on her tiny chicks - they are the size of a golfball maybe. Amelia is a RUTHLESS mom. Any time I try to put my hand into the tractor to change the water or top up the food, she flies at me, screeching and fierce. Also, the layout of the tractor makes it impossible to get a good photo. I can hardly wait to see what these chicks look like - the Polish Frizzle dad(s) are sure to add some interesting genes.
