    when i went out to SnM Poultry last month to deliver the serama chicks J. gave me some lemon blue modern game bantam eggs because i had totally fallen in love with his MGB when i had visited his place last time - they are so neat, very friendly birds and that color is to die for! (seven in total, one didn't develop so there are six still in the bator)
    well, tonight is the beginning of day 20 and one egg has pipped and one is rocking!!!!
    c'mon chickies!

    here are some photos of the new babies - four altogether. two are dark (black?) and two are silver (blue?). it's a little hard to get a good photo of them together but i did my best.

    i posted photos on page one - cute no?
    out of the seven eggs that i started with four hatched (one is still in the bator but i don't think its going to do anything - it hasn't pipped or rocked or shown any signs of life).
    two of the babies are silver and two are black. the parents are lemon blues.
