    Update:
    Momma is doing great and I have another baby, I looked at the chicks and both are Feather footed!! [​IMG] Is it possible for NNs to have feathered feeties?



    Alrighty Here is baby Holly, who upon closer inspection looks like a splash.

    And here is the baby that was under Momma this morning. I have named her Bonnie, I don't know what color she is besides silvery brown [​IMG] . Still no NN but I still have hope. (she has dark legs, can NNs have dark legs?)

    Love your pictures. It is my opinion that chicks with a mother hen is the way to go. It is a chick that is fortunate to enter this world to a loving and warm mama. Lets hear it for the great broody mothers! I don't know if the naked necks are evident in Turken chicks or not. I saw some at the feed store and I don't remember seeing any naked necks on them, maybe this this is a trait that develops later.

    Moses is a DADDY!!!!!!
    The first standard chick from my own flock just hatched out still all wet it looks like a white or buff chick. Maybe a pure buff orp or a buff orp cross (see siggy for possibilities)? Who knows but I am so excited! as soon as I get new batteries for my camera pictures will be up! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]y



    Here is the pic of the new baby right in the very back in the middle.

    My turken babies are born with naked necks. I have 11 that are a week old and have been nekked since hatching. I will try to get some pictures to post tomorrow.
