    Lone hatcher out of 8 Japanese eggs. Poor little lonely booger. Looking for another bantam chick to keep him/her company but no luck so far.

    Zippy's fuzz looks funny. The parents were both straight grey Japanese but I'm wondering if Zip isn't going to frizzle or go silkie. Can anyone tell this young, 24 hrs old?

    No luck finding bantam friends for Zippy so picked up a cuckoo Maran and an Americauna that hatched yesterday. Zippy doesn't seem to mind being the shrimp and is being way more active and perky looking already .

    Quote:She//he earned the named because she/he pipped then zipped and was out in under 2 hrs. Laid there for maybe ten minutes then was running all over the bator kicking eggs out of his/her way. Loudest chick I've ever heard. Soon as she/he pipped started SCREAMING! The bator is in our spare bathroom and you could hear her/him outside on the front lawn.
