    Holy Cow, the pictures are huge!! How do I make them smaller?

    I started with 23 eggs, 10 Cochins & 13 Silkies and ended up setting 2 cochins & 6 Silkie eggs on day 18. I ended up with 5 very healty chicks when it was all over with. 2 Blue Cochins (I think they are blue) and 3 Silkies, that I have no idea what their colors are, maybe you can tell me. [​IMG] I had 3 silkie eggs that didn't make it. When I opened the shells today, there were 2 that hadn't even started absorbing the yolk yet, so they must have died right aroudn day 18 or so, but the 3rd one, had absorbed the yolk, and was the most perfect, gorgeous dark blue with a big old top knot on it's head. I am so sad that it didn't make it. I think it was to big for the egg. It was totally crammed in there with its head still in the middle of the egg. It completely filled the egg. It didn't look like it had even turned to get to the airsac. But the bright side is my darling little ones that I do have. Here are pictures of the sweet things. If someone could tell me what the colors of them are, I would appreciate it. Sorry for all the pictures... [​IMG]

    those pix are like blinding b/c they are so huge LOL. I can't even try to see the chix through all the red background. if you used photobucket there is a link that says resize & you can click on 'forum' or 'website' eitherone will shrink it to a good size.
