    I just wanted to post a few pics of the chick that hatched out of a blue egg but is a silkie. I had 2 hatch but lost the black one for some reason. I cant wait to get more, It is a very interesting colored bird, that is for sure, THe NN from a blue egg is doing good too. It is just basically black with a little white on the wings. Thanks again Lisa.

  4. Oh Jenn! Thanks for the pics!
    Here are the 2 I hatched from the same silkie feathered green eggers. I think they are a little bit younger than yours.

    Hey Lisa,
    This one hatched on the 4th of December. It is much larger then the normal silkies that I hatched from you, it is about half again as large. I hope with the cross you might be on track for a larger silkie. If you could get them bigger and still as broody that would be the best for hatching. I have my fingers crossed it is a hen. I cant tell of course right now. It seems like they were all play fighting but I just moved them into a large water trough in the basement and so they have tons of room to run around now. I hope I can resist about another month or so before getting into the hatching feel again. I am also going to get a bunch of chicks in March too. I will let you know when I am ready for more green and blue eggs! You have the best funny lookers around! Thanks Jenn
