    Oh, TOH! They are so precious!

    All of these came out the same size and very healthy...no difference between them and mine...

    Would you believe I have another bator of these little buggers to hatch out?.. [​IMG] They are on day 12, all from Korfus Kluckers and all that she sent are growing!! ...I'm so done with blue/black/splash when this hatch is over...I've gone overboard!!!

    You are ahead of me!

    I have 23 growing out and 14 in the bator plus the 2 you gave me. So that makes 25 on the ground and the rest is up in the air. I have a nice little splash growing out from Julie's eggs - it's still early but it looks girly to me.
