    Ok, so I always have chicks hatching, [​IMG] but this is a special group! I put them in the hatcher yesterday and some of them already had pips even though they're not due until 10/2! Here's what I have in there:

    (All bantams)
    6 Buff Barred Cochins - 2 out, 2 more pipped
    6 Lavender/Silkie-feathered Cochins - 5 pipped
    4 Buff Brahmas - 1 pipped
    15 Mille Fleur Cochins - 2 pipped
    1 Silver Laced Cochin - no pips

    Hatch babies, hatch!!! [​IMG]

    You have to post pics of your babies when they get all cute and fluffed up. I eyed those eggs myself, lol. Good Luck!!!

    How long until you take them out of the bator and into the brooder?

    Whoever's fluffy by tomorrow morning will go into the brooder when I get up. They would go now, but I don't feel like walking out to the shed where the brooder is. [​IMG]
