    Here is my sole chick that hatched. I had two more eggs in the bator and when I left the house last night (even though my dh and dd were home), my cat somehow managed to get to the bator and knock it over killing the other two eggs. [​IMG] I'm glad I didn't see it happen, but I feel like if I were home, I probably would have heard some sort of commotion before it was too late. Anyway, on a brighter note, and I am trying SOOOO hard to stay positive. This is Miracle. She is still trying to get her footing. Her toes/feet were very curled at first. She has straightened one out and is walking up on her feet. She is eating/drinking on her own. I feel so badly that she is all alone, but the good news is that my broody is sitting on five eggs right now due at the end of this week. I'm planning on stealing a friend for Miracle when those hatch.

    Introducing our little Miracle (named by my daughter)....

    Way to go miracle!!! I had so many problems with my first hatch! I went out of town for a few days and left my sister in charge of the incubator and I came back with one live chick and one that was doa. It was a terrible hatch. out of 40 eggs I had five hatch. [​IMG] In my sisters deffence she didnt know anything about hatching eggs out. And I didnt really know what I was doing either. This hatch I am not making any plans to leave the house anytime around the hatch... [​IMG] just waiting on my babies now. Good luck with yours. [​IMG]

    She is a silkie. I sure wish someone close had a silkie chick available now. I'd love to give him a friend as soon as possible. Hopefully, my broody will hatch her eggs out this week and I can steal one of her babies to bring in and keep him company. She is so adorable. We added a little mirror and three small stuffed animals in the brooder for now.
