Nine out of the nine chicks that reached lockdown have hatched. I kinda miss the excitement of hatching though. I'm really happy because all are in excellent condition apart from one silkie having splayed leg which I have already bandaided up. I had to separate the big chicks from the three silkies because they were getting trampled. They are like half the size!!! I'll post pics tomorrow.

12 Silkies, 1 Gold Laced Wyandotte, 1 Barnevelder, 2 Blue Orpingtons, 2 new Hampshire Reds, 2 Austrolorps, 2 Pekins, 1 Ancona, 8 Rhode Island Reds and an incubator full of eggs.
