Yesterday one of my Lav silkied AM's hatched ..we were good and stepped away from the bator LOL but when she finally got free of the shell she was dragging around a long stringie thing (umbilical cord?) Today that had dried and wrapped itself around her leg but fell off...whew! now thats she has dried off she is in the brooder with her guardian stuffed dalmation and sleeps under it's legs (it's about 6" tall) TOOO cute! anyhow...she doesnt seem to have much down/feathers on her back? the rest of her is good and fluffy..just curious what might have caused this? stuck to shell? mavbe all the down is just glued down so we can't see it? I hope more hatch today so she will have some buddies ....we named her Happy because it's my birthday...Happy BD to me LOL If the others hatch they can be the other dwarf's name sneezy , grumpy.....uuum I forget the rest LOL If none of the others hatch I guess I will be off to TSC to get some buddies for her.
