    Out of the eggs split between my two broodies, all TEN hatched safely and wonderfully [​IMG]

    I ended up getting 3 White Silkies, and the other 7 were White Silkie x Golden Sebright crosses. [​IMG] They're all so cute! and the first time mommas are doing great also.

    Some pics for everyone's enjoyment [​IMG]

    The mixed chicks wouldn't stay still so I couldn't get them all [​IMG]

    I hope you enjoyed them! I know I did [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ETA: Forget to mention that 4 of the mixes have 5 toes on each foot, 2 have five toes on one foot, and 1 has SIX toes on both feet [​IMG] They also all have feathered feet.

    Quote:Thanks! [​IMG] I was a little worried on the last one to hatch. It was a little slow and the mothers were too preoccupied with the other 9 chicks (go figure [​IMG]) But it came out ok [​IMG]

    4 hatched out on Sunday, 4 more hatched out sometime that night, and the other two hatched on Monday. I'm glad to have little peeps running around [​IMG]

    Good luck with your eggs! [​IMG]
