    I have hatched quite a few, but I am just amazed at this chick that hatched last night. He's so wide he waddles a bit LOL! Here's a pic of my newest little Delaware [​IMG] He has a bit of shavings on his side. I woke him up for this pic.

    Quote:I'm actually disappointed in the pic. His feet are very wide apart and he's built like a doughnut, round and wide. The pic just doesn't really show it. He's noticeably heavier and taller than my other chicks have been too. Ah anyway, he's a sweet new fluffy butt...I was just impressed with his size..LOL!! Like a new mom bragging on her baby as if it were the only baby in the world [​IMG]
