    I just had a perfect hatch today! It's a first for me.

    I used a broody hen - Buffy - to hatch out my Splash Ameraucanas with the silkie feathers. They look to all be splash colored. I can't wait to see how the feathers turn out.

    Here's some cute pictures of the babies:

    Hatching with a broody brought waaaayyy better results that I seem to get with the incubator. I guess Mother Nature is always best. [​IMG]
