    Ok, I'm going to try and get each and every one of our babies that hatched on here, not all at once but I'm starting with the two survivors from AE50's group that the post office crushed:
    The first one is Nugget, the first one that hatched:

    This is Tux, the one we didn't think would live:

    This is the two of them together:

    This is Wooster, the Turken cross some thought might turn out to be a Showgirl:

    This is Wooster with his baby Japanese Quail, they are peeking out of his wings on his back while taking a "Wooster Ride":

    Quote:Thank you, Wooster is my special baby, one of our younger students at school couldn't say rooster, so his name is Wooster. He is very maternal and takes good care of the chicks,, but most of them are as big as him already, he's tiny!

    Very cute! I have a hen named Tux because she also had a bright white chest. Now she's solid black, but she earned her name as a chick, just like yours.

    Quote:I'm curious as to what it will look like older. I'd like to know if they are hens or roos but I just don't know how to tell until they either crow or lay an egg and hopefully don't do both!

    My Tux is half Cochin/Silkie cross and half Barred Rock. Here she is as a chick then an adult.

    Her face looks so much like our Charlotte's face! If she had really bushy legs and pants they'd be twins.
