    My eggs from the January Egg Swap were black and barred banty cochins, with the possibility of a silkie. One of the eggs was much smaller than the others, so I had my eye on it. It's the only one that's hatched thus far (though I still hold out hope for the others! Candled and saw movement!!) - buuut it isn't a cochin and I don't think it's a silkie.

    It's cute, whichever it is [​IMG] It's the size of my Serama chick, about half the size of the other cochin bantam chicks I got from ChickenAddict.

    [edit: Checked with MagikChick - she only has featherfoots so this can't be from her. ChickenAddict, did I somehow get another tiny one of yours and mix them up? I thought only the Serama had no writing on it, but this egg didn't either.]

    Hmmm the only clean legged chickens i have are a buff japanese and a partridge rock banty in the garage pen, could very well be a serama egg i just forgot to mark. My thoughts are its a serama or a possible mix. If it had feathered feet it would have been a brown/red cochin (pullet egg). The roos in the garage which is where all but the egg i took out of the serama nest for you are all feather footed. Hmm lol maybe just a barnyard mix.


    Cute lil bugger whatever it is [​IMG] congrats, I don't think my serama eggs made it [​IMG] going on day 20 here and not a pip in sight

    We'll see what happens as it grows up. Though if this is the roo then the other must be a pullet because it has no comb whatsoever.

    Now if they'd just sit still long enough for me to get pics..

    The messed up little chick [​IMG] Still alive, still not seeming to be in pain, still can't sit up. I'm giving it vitamins and fluids and making sure it stays warm. It's in the cage with the rest, in a tupperware container so they can't step on it. Poor little bugger [​IMG]

    Still alive, still unable to stand. I gave it more vitamins and liquids this morning. [​IMG] I think it's getting weaker, but it still doesn't seem to be in pain.
