    These are from the eggs I got from AussieSharon from the crazy egg chain! Aren't they the cutest? [​IMG] Oh, the chicken chick is from my own birds btw. [​IMG]

    Out of the ones I received (10 or 12, can't remember), there were only 5 that were good. 3 of these hatched last night, and the other today. I'm hoping the last one will hatch tonight sometime! Go hovabator!! I can't seem to hatch anything in my LG right now! They were supposed to be an assortment, but evidently these were some pretty tough eggs!

    What do you think of my 'white silkie' chick? [​IMG] That's what it is supposed to be! Guess those girls do hang around some of the other birds! [​IMG]

    Its mama was a white silkie, and since it has green legs [​IMG] I'm thinking daddy is one of my young EE/dutch mix cockerels! It is a beautiful color though! Can't wait to see what it looks like feathered out! It looks to have some silkie feathers on its wings, so that should be interesting! [​IMG]

    Too cute. Thanks for sharing the photos. Tuxedos seem to be the flavor of the month around here too. I have tuxedo chicks in my dining room and basement.

    But isn't that odd for them to be laying eggs already?? It is such a cute egg too! Are they always that tiny? This one is just a little bit bigger than the buttons eggs, a bit larger than half of a jumbo quail's egg! It is so cute! [​IMG] [​IMG]
