  1. Hi all! I thought I'd share some pics from Fridays' hatch.
    These are Ameraucana chicks. I'm really excited about the splashes. They are the first splashes I've hatched that aren't bantams.




    These have the same father (blue Ameraucana) as the first group. The hens are Lakenvelder crosses and (more or less) L'velder colored. Be interesting to see how the chicks color up.


    Same Ameraucana father, but from a Naked NeckxSilkie hen.


    (NNxS)XS chicks
    Except the one with yellow toes may be another NN / Ameraucana chick --- I'll have to check him out closer to tell.


    Blue naked neck chicks, same cross.


    Feather neck chicks, same cross.


    Mottled Cochin chicks


    ...and the last of Harolds chicks.


    ...and that's all til next Friday [​IMG]
    Thanks for looking!

    Awwww, Dipsy! Those chicks are just toooo cute!! I love them all but wondered what the future holds for that precious little black nakey neck (where he's by himself in the pick). You are an awesome photographer, by the way!
