    Bonnie pulled off yet another lovely bundle of hatching eggs.

    The splash hatched last night.

    The 2 blues had been pipped since yesterday.

    They both zipped and hatched in under 10 minutes this morning.

    It was another very clean hatch. Nothing in the bottom of the bator but some egg shell pieces. No goop, glop or muck.

    My bbs eggs from Cyn and Chris are due wednesday!

    Very nice looking chicks MP. I'm hoping by the time I get back from vacation the beginning of august maybe I'll be getting some from mine that I can pop in the bator.

    I would love to, Jen. Do you have anything other than silkies? I do not keep those. I only have big sassy full bodied chickens with lots of fluff - mostly orpingtons. [​IMG] My Mosby is well over 10lbs. He and Bonnie are only about 30 some weeks old [​IMG] Lots more growing to do.

    Mosby is the sire of these chicks.
