    This morning I have 1 white, and 1 hatched that could have been a showgirl, but it wasn't. Its a pretty little vaulted silkie. I'm not sure what color, it was still all wet and I had to leave to go to work. I have 2 more that have pipped. I gave my son detailed instructions on the report I expect as soon as he gets home! This will be a long say at work!![​IMG]

    Where is Melissa Rose?

    Oh YAY!! What is a vaulted silkie? Never heard that term before? Oh I so know how you feel about having to go to work, I remember on our first hatch when they all started pipping, my husband was home while I had to go to work, needless to say I hardly got anything done that day, [​IMG] I was on the phone with him or texting, it was the longest day ever, lol.

    Yea I haven't seen any recent post from Mellissa, that's why I was wondering, hope she has some new babies!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
