    13/13 eggs out of Lockdown... aren't they cute?

    *the one looks freaky because he still has a bunch of membrane attached, we're trying to figure out how to get it off without hurting him*

    They are super cute!!
    I love the top little reddish one, I never seem to get that color!
    Best of luck with your new babies!

    Awww I miss hatching these little guys! Half the fun is not knowing what colors you'll end up with! I can't wait until my little ones grow up and I have a breeding pair again! BTW how was your hatch rate? For me these guys are the hardest thing to hatch. My last set from my Serama hen that passed away was something like 5 out of 12 hatched. Most died either partially developed or almost fully developed. That Serama lethal gene is an evil evil thing!

    21 eggs shipped from eBay. 7 candled clear. One late quitter, but all that made it to lockdown, 13 unless my math is off--hatched.

    I got two or three reddish chicks a black, and a bunch of light ones.
    It's great!​
