    They are beautiful! Like a Whitman's sampler.

    Why the marbles in the water dish?
    So I'll know what to do next time.

    3goodeggs, the marbles are to prevent accidental drownings while the chicks are small.

    I love the assortment. Hopefully I will have a successful hatch with lots of colors.
