    Oh my goodness, that lil chick JUST hatched I see. What is the mix? I have a chick that my broody hatched out and I can't figure out who the dad is.

    Did you take it through the window? I can't ever get good pictures through the window.

    Yes, I took them all through the window. The camera is a Nikon D40 digital SLR. I have wanted it for a long time and finally decided to get it. I am very pleased so far. Just wish the windows on the bator were bigger!

    The mix is: The rooster seems to be a cross between something and a silkie. It has blue ears and a poor on top of its head. The hens are RIR's and BR's and Ideal 236 white egg layers.

    Those little peeps look exhausted! Great photographs, Jay. It looks like your hatch this time will be more successful for you. [​IMG]
    Will you show us few more pics when the chicks are up and investigating their new world?
