Here's some updated pictures of the brood. They are about 2 1/2 weeks old in these photos

This is the second one hatched, the one in the video.

Here is a video of the second chick hatching-also an Icelandic.

The Icelandic eggs came from Lisa Richards at Mack Hill Farm and the Swedish Flower Hen (and silkie, silkie cross) eggs came from Saskia Cacanindin at Blue House Farm. These are both landrace breeds that have only been in the US for a short time.
