    Wooooohooooooooo I've got a baby![​IMG] [​IMG] One has hatched so far from the dozen that my broody is on. It's still a bit wet, but it looks buff. There weren't supposed to be any buffs, but I'm thinking that white silkie babies sometimes have buff fluff, right?

    I didn't want to lift mama up too much, cuz it's windy and ugly today, and I didn't want to chill the baby or mess up others that are hatching. I'm dying to get pictures, but I'm going to just wait... [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Oh help me be strong and leave them alone!!! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thanks for those crossed fingers! Give me blue and splash hens and roosters... that's what I'm wanting to breed. [​IMG]
