Finally I have chicks! Yay!
They were hatching yesterday (under my broody Princess) but while I was trying to move her I broke the shell of one egg. The membrane was fine so I brought it inside and put it in the incubator to hatch.
It hatched at around 3:40 in the morning and I heard it cheeping so I brought it out to its mother and it happily cuddled under her.
This is her out of the shell. I named her Sight (for a complicated reason. Something to do with a book called Cracked and a character named Silas). She's a pretty little bantam.
While I put her out I got a picture of her big sister, Nat (short for either Natasha or Natalie, not sure yet). I think she is my Golden Sebright's chick, though I'm not sure who the father is.
Snart (for Captain Cold) is working on hatching right now. He went cold under his mother because she didn't realize he was there while tending to her other chicks. I brought him in to hatch, thinking he might be dead, but he started talking as he warmed up and now he is successfully hatching.
By the way, the other egg with an opening in this picture is Kojak, and I have a feeling he is dead. Kojak has been like this since I set his egg and I think the bacteria or humidity or something got to him.
Here are Snart's three siblings after their move to the larger crate with food and water for their momma (who was very happy to say the least). From left to right is Sight, Nat, and then my silkies little chick, Roshashanah (or Shani for short).
I'm happy that this little one made it! It's always nice to have one make it that, it's so cute. :)
Another cute baby...what is this again?
