    I received 6 BBS Silkie eggs from cjexotic 1 egg didn't make it into lockdown, but the other 5 did. As of now, I have one chick that hatched last night and is fully dry and I have 2 more almost completely out of their shells!! I am so excited!! I tried to take pics but its really hard to get a good one through the bator window LOL. I will take one soon, just had to share my success!! I am not giving up hope on the other two eggs yet either [​IMG]

    OMG, just check breed section, so that kind of chicken that have body full of feather (or maybe furs [​IMG] ) is called silkie, i can't imagine how soft their body? if only i can import some eggs from US i could have some silkies also over here. [​IMG]
