Easter Chicky Update

Yesterday was tough going, after losing Chicky 2 the day before, we were disheartend to find the last 'good' egg pipped, but no further action.
After doing a crash internet course on helping chicks to hatch I set about slowly helping Chicky 3 to hatch - it took 8 hours to hatch and another 3 hours for it to recover some strength.

I have to thank my lucky stars that we have an Aga - because I'm certain without it Chicky would not have pulled through - it acted as Chicky special care baby unit!

I was afraid to look under Marjorie this morning....but joy...look!

It is still early days, but I feel a bit more hopeful today!
