The Fluffy Butts have started to arrive!
The fluffier one, closer to Mom - Chubby, hatched last night. My youngest daughter said she found a open blue green egg. So I imagine that was from Chubby.
The smaller one, Nicole, hatched early this morning - by 6am, my daughters were telling me we had 2 chicks.
Chubby likes to climb on Mom. Both have feathered feet, and are yellow legged.
The eggs Ramin hatched 2 years ago, all had black feathered feet, 2 had the 5th toe. Hank was the daddy of all those chicks.
Hank & his brother Cotton, both have black legs and feathered feet, their Daddy was a pure Silkie (all black).
What I am trying to figure out is, I had 2 Easter Egger eggs, I tossed one out last night, it was ice cold, and no sound coming from the egg.
Ramin has had that egg to the back side of her for over a week, if I saw it out from under her wing, I would push it back under her. Guess she knew it was not good.
Because Nicole looks like a chipmunk, could it be that Lollie's Mama was a Easter Egger? (Questions, questions, more questions)
2 eggs were Lollie's - she is half silkie and half not sure (had Buff Orph, New Hampshire Reds, Easter Eggers and Buckeyes, when she was born)
I know the Mama of my head Rooster & his brother, was a Buff Orph, I saw the eggs they came out of, and they were a totally different color from the NH Red and Buckeyes..
And the last 2 eggs were Ramin's.
Just waiting to see what happens in the next 24 hours, because I am not sure if all the eggs were set at the same time. Ramin went broody on Sunday April 10th, and was in the corner of the coop, till Tues. night, April 12th, when I moved her inside. And Lacy & Star were both trying to lay eggs on top of Ramin, Monday & Tuesday, but they are both Easter Eggers, and those eggs are now done.
Ramin is still on lock down, will shift, and turn, but has no desire to get up yet. But she knows she still has eggies under her.
So I now await the fate of 3 more eggs!
