Broody Cookie Update:
6 out of 7 eggs hatched, but today is the official hatch date. There's still a chance for 100%. The last egg is a dark, thick shelled, Maran egg, so there's also a chance of nothing. (I never could see into it when candling.)
3 chicks hatched last night. Many eggs still without pips. Looks like it could be a long 24 hrs!
DD has quickly fallen in love with a white silkie of Cookie's. She's already held it a few times & jokes of chick-napping it away from Cookie. LOL Not sure what I think of owning a silkie. I heard white silkies are hawk magnets. Does anyone here own a silkie - especially a white?
BTW- The silkie looks a little gray. I know that both parents were white. Could it be the black skin or low light making the chick look grayish?
White silkies are weird like that. I've heard of them hatching out gray, but mine hatched out buff and turned white! It's a silkie thing,.
