They look pretty Blue Isbar-y. Their names are Tami, and Vannestel.

I'm looking forward to hearing home to see what my
AY have hatched....I had a total of 4 with little holes in their she'll that I could see when I left this morning. Hope the other 3 eggs have some progress by now as well.

I had one of the 9 peck a hole in its she'll on day 19....lots of liquid came out, and it did not make it. I had a lot of trouble with my incubator randomly jumping 5 degrees then falling 10. I think the biggest variance was a low of 94 and a high of 105. But they have been lucky so far...I'll update later. I just wanted to share the first: meet Izzy or Blue![IMG][IMG]

 

Nice name choices. My dog is named Izzy and my blue isbar hen is named Blue also!

Here are my 4 new chicks...the one from yesterday and 3 from today...still have 3 eggs in the incubator, but I don't have high hopes for them. Are the darker considered blue or black? I'm having a harder time finding a lot of info on the Blue Isbar chicks than others. Does anyone know if you can tell male or female from the wing feathers?

I


Congrats on your hatch!!  I also hatched Silverudd Blue's recently and they all hatched but over 3 days!  I was so nervous!!  I don't believe you can tell yet based on wing feathers if they're male or female.
