    Here are the pics. 8 out of 13 hatched. This is a pretty good hatch. The first four are the NNs, I dont think you will be able to see it in the pic but the first one is all blueish but has redish fluff around his eyes. I cant wait to see how the feathers come out. The next 2 are all bluish black and the last as you can see turned out yellow with a black spot on its head.. THe next 4 are the non NNers. 3 of the 4 have the 5 toes of a silkie. The other is a little odd ball. I have to work more with the camera to get better pics later. Enjoy Jenn

    Congratulations! They are sooooo cute.
  5. Hi Jenn! How'd I miss this?!?!
    They're darlings, but not what I expected. I had the girls moved for 3 wks, but guess that wasn't long enough.
    That yellow leg chick is almost certainly fathered by my
    mottled Cochin roo.
    The red head naked neck chick is likely from my red head girl that I lost in the dog attack.
    The light colored naked neck is a splash.
    And the black one with the yellow head spot looks like a Barred Rock!
    It should be interesting to see how they feather out [​IMG]

    I'll be sending out your other box tomorrow (the frizzles and more naked necks).

    Thanks for the pics.

    Thanks a bunch, I was wondering what the little mottled one was.LOL At least they all carry the NN gene. They are so sweet. I cant wait to get the next ones set!! Were any of the frizzle NN laying yet??? I seem to be getting a little obsessed with NN again..lol I JUST LOVE THEM!!! My hubby says its just wrong to breed a bird to be that ugly..LOL But he loves me so he tolerates my chickens. I will let you know when the eggs get here.. Thanks again, Jenn
