    Yahhhhh!! Diamond hatched out one of her eggs this morning! could have been last night because she growled at me for the first time ever yesterday when I was refilling her bowl of feed and her water. I went in to check on her and I heard "Peep" in a teeny tiny little voice and looked and sure enough there was a empty shell!! She is sitting tight on her nest and won't let me look!! here is what they could be, A pure silkie, a silver seabright, a silver/buff seabright or a silkie/fav chick! I really want the Sal.fav/silkie mix but I will be happy with whatever I get, put hoping for pullets of the SF persuasion! LOL Pictures coming soon , well as soon as she will let me get em!!

    PS I can't wait to post the "Whos your Daddy pictures!!" LOL

    Ut-oh just thought of another thing? should I replace her laying pellets with chick starter? Im sure the babies need it or should I keep a bowl of her pellet in there and put a small bowl of starter in there also, and about the waterer, should I put rocks in her bowl to keep them from drowning? Help me please first time grandma to chicks born to a real live Momma! LOL well going to put stones in her bowl cause now Im worried!

    Up to 2 they both appear to be silkies, at least half! They have feathered legs and at least one with a poof up top! there buff or eggshell colored and 1 has real clear dots on her/him the other appears a little smugded! but also some sort of splash! Boy this is soooo exciting!
