    My very first chick ever hatched this morning! Here he is with his temporary friend, I'm hoping some of his siblings will hatch soon.

    He is a RIR Ameraucana mix. His Dad is half RIR half Ameraucana (the one in my avatar) and his mom is a RIR. Idk if it's a he or she, he looks like he might be bearded like the dad so I'm calling it a he for now and secretly hoping for a hen. He hatched out of a jumbo egg, (I didn't weigh it, but I can't get the lid closed well when I put them in a large egg carton) the eggs are huge compared to the silkie eggs I also have in the bator. [​IMG] I'm so excited, I can see how hatching can easily become addicting.

    good luck with the rest of them

    give him/her 24 hours then look at the wing pin feathers

    a bot is all one length and a girl is short and long alternating
