    Charlotte's little hidden treasures are hatching! The five I swiped when I found her nest of 10 are hatching and so far they look like Blue the daddy, they have his feet, only 4 toes and are a pretty grey/blue color.
    The ones she is sitting on are due in approximately 4 or 5 days.
    I'll have pics on tonight after they dry a bit.

    The other two are pipping and zipping, I think the fifth one died a couple of days ago but I'm waiting on it. The first two are both a silver/blue color like Blue, the first has skinny legs like blue the second has heavier legs like Charlotte but they both have only the four toes. More to follow as they hatch.

    The third egg is zipping and I'll bet the fourth hatches during the night. Once they pip they zip quick and have a clean bloodless hatch!

    Very cute. Congrats! Are they silkies? I am on day 21 with my silkie, sebright, and mixed bantam eggs as of 12pm this afternoon. I have 4 pips. None of the silkies have pipped yet. Probably later today. I cant wait for them to hatch.
