First chicks

As usual, there has been a hen or two who have gone broody 12′ high in the interior of the new barn. The first brood hatched last night and today and Gary scaled the purlins to retrieve them. One chick died in the shell, 6 hatched and 2 are on their way. Looks like out of the 6, I have 2 hens.
