Hi everyone! I hatched my first chickies, some orpington eggs from Bama over Black Hens and here they are!! We hatched 7 out of 12 viable eggs (viable on day 18) The silver chicks a few hours post hatch... are they blues?? Silvers fluffed up the next day, the 2nd one not so silver anymore Focus on this silver beauty: The 6 that hatched out within 24 hours of eachother And the next day, I woke up and found "wimpy" in the incubator all alone. After a few hours wimpy was very lethargic so I moved him/her to the brooder asap. She/he is still lethargic today, 2 days later. Time will tell... Soo? How did I do? Aren't they pretty?? All 1st hatch pics are located here: 1st Hatch Album And here are my australorps who arrived by post & bamachicks all together in my Snoozer (toddler bed) brooder: We have 15 chicks!!
