    I have three girls sitting. I came home yesterday (day 21) and heard peeps! One had hatched and another girl had one in the process. As soon as I picked her up to see it came flailing out of the egg! It was so COOL! This morning there are three, I'm waiting on 8 more. Sorry the pics are kind of blurry, I was in a hurry to get to work. I can not WAIT to get home!

    Two little heads peeking out!

    This is from last night, we picked her up just in time to see it come out.

    Just kidding. There are cute. I would love to have a couple for roommates for my blind pullet. I hear silkies would be great for her.

    LOL Southern... Believe me, I don't know that I'll keep all of them. So I'll let you know when they get a little older!!

    Silkies are wonderful. I bet they would make terrific roommates for her.
