That blue chick is adorable.. with its white wings against the blue.. but personally myself, I would never attempt anything like that.
Well, finally Thurs. night April 5-- 7pm I had my first pip. 10:30pm, my second. Friday morning, those 2 had hatched.. and had many more pips and a zip! HOURS later, out of 18 fertile eggs, that were in the incubator at lockdown, I have 17 live chicks, 9 I put in the brooder last night, and 7 are in the bator this morning. The other 2 eggs, I can see, one has a pip.. the other could too, but it could be upside down, the way the others in there knock them around, lol.
A very colourful batch!! yellow, black, black and white, browns. They are from my shaver red hens.. and 2 roosters I hatched here under a broody, eggs I got from a friend. So.... they must be a layer breed cross of some sort. They are every colour under the sun. And, she doesnt know what they are either. Hoping for lots of pullets from this batch. I can't believe how long it takes from the first pip, until they have all hatched. Killer, waiting on those last two.. I want the incubator cleaned, and filled again!
