    I ended up with 8...out of the 16... 6 still in the bator, I'll do eggtopies tomorrow. Weird how I can have 15 on day 18 but only hatch 8... one pipped and I should have intervened...

    Aren't they GORGEOUS!!!?

    How'd I end up with a Buff? [​IMG] Doesn't matter, He is gorgeous!

  4. Hi Dar'! When that happens here, it's usually because I've messed up the humidity in the bator. My hens don't seem to have that problem.
    Did the break-out show anything unusual?

    The off-color ones are most likely from recessive genes hiding under the blue/black in the Am's (don't quote me on that because I don't know for sure --- just that they pop out once in a while). And you're right, that one will probably be a 'he'. Heavenly Springs hatched a couple of more silvery off-color ones that will prob be girls.

    They are precious! I hope they all grow well for you.
