The cleaners are here. I’d better not have to clean up after the cleaners though!

Poppy meeting the three new chicks while she has her breakfast. To be honest, I don't think I will be using this incubator again. Things didn't really go as planned with this hatch. Letting these three cuties fluff up and get their strength. Hoping two of the olive hatchlings are cuckoo colour like their mum. 🤞 🥚www.oliveegghomestead.com.au #backyardchickens #babychicks #broodyhen #freerangechickens #hens #poultry #chickenspam #chooks #backyardhens #mixedflock #eggs #bantamhens #eastereggers #oliveeggers #friendsnotfood #backyardhens #incubatingeggs #crazychickenlady #australianchickens #aussiechicks

Day 21...no external pips yet.🤷 Trying to hold onto the fact that these hens eggs hatched later even when mumma hen incubated them. So used to getting pips day 20 with other eggs.🤞🤞🤞 update: few have internally pipped and can hear chirping. They are just comfy in their eggs for now. 😏 🥚www.oliveegghomestead.com.au #backyardchickens #babychicks #broodyhen #freerangechickens #hens #poultry #chickenspam #chooks #backyardhens #mixedflock #eggs #bantamhens #eastereggers #oliveeggers #friendsnotfood #backyardhens #incubatingeggs #crazychickenlady #australianchickens #aussiechicks

Penny the moody broody has calmed down finally, so I've decided to let her and the three OE chicks she raised out of their pen. The tan and black's colour is so random. Its mum is a pale buff colour though. Hoping it's a pullet. I can tell the white one is a boy. Its comb is huge. 😁 Penny is looking a little scraggy due to post broodiness and moulting. 😏 🥚www.oliveegghomestead.com.au #pulletsandcockerels #backyardchickens #babychicks #broodyhen #freerangechickens #hens #poultry #chickenspam #chooks #backyardhens #mixedflock #eggs #eastereggers #oliveeggers #friendsnotfood #backyardhens #silkie #crazychickenlady #australianchickens #aussiechicks #frizzle #polishchicken #aracuana

Our oldest chicks are around 5 weeks old. Starting to see some reddish combs coming in on a few. Clearly this blue laced wyandotte is a boy. 😁 🥚www.oliveegghomestead.com.au #pulletsandcockerels #backyardchickens #babychicks #broodyhen #freerangechickens #hens #poultry #chickenspam #chooks #backyardhens #mixedflock #eggs #eastereggers #oliveeggers #friendsnotfood #backyardhens #silkie #crazychickenlady #australianchickens #aussiechicks #frizzle #polishchicken #aracuana #wyandotte

Torpedo feeding Poppy for the first time. We felt it was becoming hard work for her self feeding with her cross beak. She was not picking up alot and was taking a long time for her to eat. I ground up her feed and mixed with egg and a little water until it was a playdough consistency. (see pic) will keep in the fridge. She's not so keen, but hoping over time she will realise we are helping her. Nice full crop after that feed. I will still provide her usual mash but back it up with this method throughout the day. 🥚www.oliveegghomestead.com.au #cockadoodledoo #specialneedschicken #backyardchickens #babychicks #freerangechickens #hens #poultry #chickenspam #chooks #backyardhens #mixedflock #eggs #eastereggers #oliveeggers #friendsnotfood #backyardhens #silkie #crazychickenlady #australianchickens #aussiechicks #frizzle #polishchicken #aracuana

Today's buff duck egg is looking bigger and more to size. Size comparison with our Isa Brown (pic2) and silkie egg (pic3) which are our biggest and smallest egg layers. 🦆 🥚www.oliveegghomestead.com.au #ducktales #ducklingspam #ducks #buff #bufforpingtonduck #duckpond #buffduck #ducklings #hatchingducks #chickens #hens #backyardchickens #babychicks #freerangechickens #hens #poultry #chickenspam #chooks #backyardhens #mixedflock #eggs #friendsnotfood #backyardhens #silkie #crazychickenlady #australianchickens #aussiechicks #frizzle #polishchicken #barredrockhen

Watching chickens is the perfect way to end a rather crappy kind of work day. #ChickenSpam #GoodForTheSoul #BackyardChickens

Day 18 incubator lockdown. Time for these chickies to get into position for hatch. Turners out, non slip mat in. All wells filled with water. I've only hatched in this incubator once. I don't really like all the tubes and wires sitting on top of the floor on this incubator, but will give it another go. First time hatching our hen named Olive's eggs. 🥚www.oliveegghomestead.com.au #backyardchickens #babychicks #broodyhen #freerangechickens #hens #poultry #chickenspam #chooks #backyardhens #mixedflock #eggs #bantamhens #eastereggers #oliveeggers #friendsnotfood #backyardhens #incubatingeggs #crazychickenlady #australianchickens #aussiechicks
