    21 eggs-12 hatched, but 2 are iffy on if they will make it. The first 10 are doing well and mostly fluffed out, so I made them pose for pics [​IMG] Most of the dark ones look more brown, must be the lighting, they look more black up close. I had a running competition with my broody hen to see which had a better hatch...the incubator won 8-4.

    These 4 came out of green EE eggs I got at the auction. I am really curious about the black one with the white spot on its head. 2 hatched in the bator/2 under my broody.

    The following are from shipped eggs from crazychickengirl.

    Silver Spangled Hamburg/Australorp mixes. One hatched in bator/1 under broody.

    Java/Aus. mix. Hatched in bator.

    Chantecler/Aus. mix. Hatched in bator.

    Buff Orp/Aus. mix. Hatched in bator-first to hatch.

    Silver Laced Wyandotte/Aus mix. Hatched in bator. This is the little runt of the hatch, its starting to perk up a bit more now.

    RIR/Barred Rock mix from newnanchic. It was the only 1 of 5 she sent me that hatched. Hatched under broody.

    Aww, to cute. I wish I could get these to stay still long enough to get a good picture.

    Thanks everyone! I love them all, they are so sweet!

    I know what you mean. I had the hardest time getting their pics. Specially the EEs, those feisty lil creatures don't know the meaning of hold still!
