    Both these chicks were hatched yesterday. Talk about a comparison. The brahma looks like a monster compared to the little silkie.

    I hatched them yesterday. I'm just taken aback at how huge the brahmas are - granted they're huge chickens, but still.....

    What kind of Brahma is that. There are Standard and Bantam size Braham. Even my Bantam size Buff Braham are rather large.


    But that Silkie is just beautiful, what a full face. My silkies did not hatch out that small or that full. That's gona be a beautiful bird. Now, my Serama do hatch out quite Small.

    This is my last Serama hatched. Started out Tan and Brown when feathers came in, now turning White with Speckles of Black, strange color changes these birds have.


    Enjoy you babies and take lots of pics.

    They are standard light brahmas. I read an article in my poultry magazine that discussed their size and gentle behaviour. Thus my new 14 babies. They are the fluffiest chicks I've ever seen.
