    Oh my! My little silkie, Strous, went broody 21 days ago.... We put 3 eggs under her, 1 of hers, black silkie hen x with White silkie roo, and 2 RIR hen x with possibly a EE roo.

    We have 1 baby completely out, the RIRxEE. Its a beaut'. the other RIRxEE has made a small hole and i am just shaking with nerves. I wish I could take the day off work!

    Thanks so much! I've been running around the house, jumping up and down like crazy for the past few hours. It's just all so exciting. My very first hatch and I didn't even know if any were going to hatch at all, now 1 at least has hatched. I can't wait for the other ones.
