I had three precious little legbar chicklets hatch this morning from MadamWlfCumbos beauteous egglings It would have been 5 if one of my stupid incubators had not died the night before
One of the roos is lighter than the other. The Pullet looks like she has a spot on her head but it is only the moisture from her hatch that has not fluffed up yet
Thanks for posting these guys. My favorite part about chickens is the new little chicks. I had a golden CLB cockerel. I love the light colored ones. I am pretty sure that one of the flock in the UK that greenfire got stock from produced all golden cockerels. Now the lines are all mixing though. Kind of a pitty in some ways. :-)
I was hatching Marans earlier this month and my "stupid incubator" die on us at day 11. I only had one incubator, so out of despiration we put the nine eggs in an electric serving tray lined with towles until we could figure out something better. We never found anything better. The temperature swings were huge. We spiked up to 111 deg and out of fear of rosting them alive on many morning we found we had turned the knobe too low and woke up to room temperature eggs. Still we had 2 out of 9 hatch right on schedule. They came out with out any problems and are as healthy as any chicks I have ever seen. My wife thinks they are both pullets too.
