    One of the little EE crosses decided to hatch a day early, sooo cute! still stuck in its egg halfway, it looks like a black/dark colored chick... wonder what it's mixed with?

    3 more pips now, but one looks like its pipping at the bottom of the egg instead of up at top, will this be a problem?

    Congrats !! EEs are wonderful layers especially their crosses with Leghorns, I hatched some of them a few days ago, they are really adorable .

    i wish i could keep them all, but i don't have room for 15 more chickens, lol! i'm selling all these little ones and now that the incubator is working properly i'm going to start collecting eggs from my frizzled bantam cochin and standard cochin who are both bred to my silkie roo and hatch those!!! [​IMG] these ones will stay around for a couple weeks, going to use them at work on easter for all the kids to play with.

    NOW i've got one out, 4 pips, and one of those 4 is talking back to the one who's out. gonna be a long day!
