    I set 5 of my own eggs and had 5 hatch on Friday and one died leaving me with 4 chicks. Here are some pics of them:

    This little guy has a nice vault:

    Nice feet too, but could use a bit more feathers on the feet, but nice I think:

    Some nice toes on all of them. And how cute are silkie babies anyway right?

    [​IMG] great hatch. Those look like my blue and splash did as chicks. What are the parents of them?
    They are beautiful babies.

    They are from my black/blue silkies so they could be black/blue/splash and could be frizzled as well. My roo is a sizzle. Thanks so much for the nice comments. I just love baby chicks, especially silkies.
