    Monday evening I saw the first pip, and now I have 6 sweet Ameraucana chicks running abound in my used-to-be-very-empty brooder [​IMG]
    I ordered 22 eggs from DipsyDoodleDoo (Lisa). I had to set them at two different times, though, so I only had 12 due right now. The other 10 are due Sat/Sun.

    Chick #6 is still drying out in the 'bator, but I'll get a picture tomorrow.


    Here is a picture to show my one gigantic chick!

    I'm not sure, yet? (Lisa..where are you? Any ideas on the colors?)
     
  8. Hi Grace! I don't know which Ameraucana hen is throwing the wild colored chicks.
    I swear all the girls in the Am' pen are blue, black, or splash and the roo is black.
    My last Am' hatch, I got a reddish chick and a striped one like in your pic.

    Is the hatch done?

    They are adorable Grace! I'm crossing my fingers that my two remaining Ameracana eggs will make it through the hatch.

    That's fine, Lisa. I'll just wait until they get older than I will know what they'll look like [​IMG]
    I am kinda' partial to Blue colored chickens, but I really don't care otherwise - they are all so sweet [​IMG]
    I think this "round" of hatching is done. Out of 12 eggs, 6 hatched, 1 tried to hatch but couldn't make it ([​IMG]), 3 didn't appear to have developed all the way, and the other 2... well, I'm not really sure [​IMG]


    Coffeegirl78, thanks [​IMG] I hope both of yours hatch, too [​IMG]



    - Oh, and I lost my "Goliath" [​IMG] I'm not really sure what happened; I think he was eating the wood shavings. I just now changed their setup [​IMG]
