    He's one week old today and my ONE & ONLY I got to hatch. Eggs came from Ideal. Most were clear, three others developed backwards in the shells and look like they ran out of air?? I have found someone who breeds these...so I'll be ordering more in August....but this little guy sure is cute! And fiesty!

    Good luck with yours! Hopefully, the one orny little chick I have is just a fluke thing? LOL You can see the evil eye he's giving me in the second to the last pic! [​IMG]

    They are adorable [​IMG] I have 7 new chicks and 3 quail that are less than a week old. The chicks are my Gold Laced Cochin Bantams and some Frizzle/Leghorn mixes that somehow managed to hatch after spending a week in the mail last month:) I got 4 to hatch out of 15 but then one died:( The other 3 are going very strong though:) I sure hope they frizzle for me and are pullets or I will have to get rid of them as I have too many roosters already but I thought if they were pullets I'd keep them for eggs for eating.

    Quote:They are. I wish my camera wasn't broken. [​IMG] I know I could sale some of their chick photos on my photography site. The freak of this group right now is my BB Game chick as it's the only one without fuzzy legs.

    Quote:My current camera is Make: SONY Model: DSC-H2. The button the take the photo popped off somehow and there was a tiny little pin that went with it. I did not notice it when it happened so I have no clue where the button and the pin are at. But, it won't let you hold down to take a photo now:( It is still under warranty but I don't know where the box and receipts are because we moved since we bought it at a Nebraska Office Max.

    Aww...too bad it's a SONY. My parents own a camera repair shop & have been there since 1976. My dad's business works on digital & film cameras, but not Sony's.

    I would have wanted something else but when my parents were buying it for me I couldn't complain. Thanks for trying. [​IMG]
