    pic please. I have never seen a silkie before (except in pics) so it will almost be like seeing one IRL.

    I would be freaking out

    [​IMG] I posted a picture of the little one! It is so cute! I was disappointed to get home and find no more hatched and one had started and was dead. I don't know what went wrong. But it has been a long time since i"ve done this and it is a borrowed incubator. I am not giving up on the rest of the eggs and will give them a couple more days and keep my fingers crossed. :|

    I'm not sure what color. It is grey and white mixed now. The eggs came from a flock of mixed colors, so it will be a surprise I guess? I am not real familiar with silkies, so don't know the different colors they can be.
