    We actually had 5 chicks hatch out of 78.
    2 of them died almost immediately.The other 3 were so coated with dried gunk that I didn't think would come off. I had to peel the membrane off of them and use warm water to get their wings unglued from their eyes and their feet. But at a week old these little guys are starting to look like chicks!

    The rest of this bunch were hatched a couple days ago from the HovaBator
    Now THIS is going to be one interesting chicken!
    It's pretty obvious that her (?) daddy is the Silkie roo I posted in the Ugly Chicken thread. This is one of the baked ones.

    She (?) is developing regular buff/grey feathers on the wings, but her chest and shoulders are white silkie fur!

    Nice looking chicks sorry about all the ones that didn't hatch. That one chick has fuzz and feathers?

    Good luck with your chicks.

    Quote:Yes! She has downy "fur" starting to grow at the shoulders and chest, while the rest of the wngs and her back are developing normal feathers. I can't wait to see what she looks like when she loses all her baby fuzz.
