In February and March of 2014 my wife and I bought a bunch of Rhode Island Red pullets. Mixed in with those pullets was a rooster. We already had two roosters so my wife and I loaned the Rhode Island rooster to my cousin.

One of my cousins Australorp hens went broody and has been sitting on a clutch of eggs. Today, that Australorp hen hatched out a Rhode Island Red chick.

The hen still has a bunch of eggs under her. Hopefully several more chicks will hatch out.

To some this might seem like a single chick, so what. To me, that chick is a symbol of hope. Hope that one day I will have a self-sustaining chicken flock.

With the new chicken yard and chicken house next spring will tell the tale.

Congratulations on the hatching of your first born, may it lead to a large and happy flock!
Thank you.

The goal is to have the new chicken yard and chicken house finished by winter. then next spring give the hens a place to sit on eggs.
