    I can't believe it! I am so proud! [​IMG]

    I have had only silkies in the past but some of my silkies went broody so I got them some non-silkie eggs to sit on. Got 2 out of the 3 eggs but one of the chicks "disappeared" one day so that left me with this one (pictured below). She is also twice the size of her "mummy" [​IMG]

    (Note: She was born 23/12/09 - dd/mm/yy. 2 days before Christmas! ^.~)

    And here is her egg (left) next to one of my silkie eggs (right):
