    Well first let me say good news. I had a few eggs under a broody silkie and they were to hatch yesterday. I didn't take them out as it has been cold. I checked this afternoon and one blue orp chick had hatched so Iadded it to the brooder box. I now have three Blue Orp chicks and one Buff.

    A total of 11 chicks so far. I am giving that silkie a little more time on hatching.

    Hi
    they look really cute!
    What do you give them as their first feed?
    Also when do you introduce grit?
    Still waiting on my very first hatch.

    I have a few in the bator but none close to hatch. I think Christina hatched one. I haven't seen a pic though. I am going to concentrate on the Mottles about a month from now and let some of my silkies set the eggs.
