    My egg hatched on Halloween.[​IMG] I was out trick-or-treating when it hatched, but when I came home there was a little baby chicken.[​IMG] I hope that it is a girl so that I can keep it, it is my first successful hatchling.[​IMG] I know that it is a silkie because it has little feathers on its feet and 5 toes on each foot.[​IMG] Here is a picture, If you have any pics that could show me what it willl look like as an adult that would be awesome.[​IMG] Thankyou in advance.[​IMG]

    It is now 8 days old, and is developing black blotches on its feathers. Does this mean I am going to have a spotted silkie?[​IMG]
