hi guys! i'm kinda double posting here, i put this same thread on the "stories of your chickens".....but anyway, i have a 10 day old silkie....the only hatch out of 14 eggs! she's spoiled ROTTEN! well, i had her eggshell DNA tested to see what her sex was! she's a GIRL!!! i also did the silly "hang the needle over the egg" thingy (if it circles, it's a boy, if it goes back and forth, it's a girl) i did that before she went into lockdown and it said she was a girl too. i am SO SO happy! i wanted to keep her anyway, if she was a roo, but i also realized it MAY not work out. so NOW, there's no doubt about it! she's a keeper!!!! yeah Sweet Pea! you go GIRL!!!!
