It's hatch time...

These are wild birds they ain't drowning hen has enough instinct to get them on high ground. And the weather has been warm piedmont on east no issue with hypothermia. I can't see in any way a week of rain gonna ruin a hatch at this point

3 hens in the backyard this morning eating corn, 2 had very tiny poults with both having 5 each as far as we could tell . We typically have turkeys almost every day feeding in the back yard but we haven't seen any babies until this morning. I hope they can survive the onslaught of raptors that come to feed on the birds around our bird feeders.
2 Hens combined their brood last year, started with 9 chicks and ended up with 7 grown birds by the end of the season, that's a darn good percentage.
