Well I can't believe that I let my doubts get the better of me this morning. The temp was just below zero but the wind was so cold and coming from the east, right in the door of the chicken's barn.
But the pungent odor of a broody hen's daily poop is something that will make your eyes water. You certainly don't want that in your house!
I can't wait to see that chick though, so far I've only felt it's little legs under her. I just hope it's not half Salmon Faverolle. The rooster likes the old Salmon Faverolle hen and it was obvious that only one of the hens was laying fertile eggs. I've got six Buff Chantecler hens and I was hoping for Buff Chantecler chicks. Oh well, the feet will tell the story of who the mother is. Salmon Faverolles have 5 toes.
Update: I heard some peeping from the basement just now. So I ran down and I got to see the little one and snap the photo above. It looks like a purebred Chantecler - haven't checked the feet yet.
