    So I have been having baby fever. A little over a month ago, I purchased a breeder Trio of Marans . Got them home and they layed the next day and continue. Well I could not let those Marans eggs be eatten, so I might have fired up the incubator. And since it was running, why not stick some White Silkie eggs in there also. And here are the results. And to top it off, my first 100% hatch, 8 Marans Eggs and 8 Beautiful Chicks.

    Plus thanks to BYH's encouragement, I decided to try taking some pictures that were not blah.. Hope you enjoy.

    You must have been especially good this year for Santa to have brought you such a special gift. [​IMG] What a beautiful flock of chicks! Will you give them winter/holiday names?

    Unfortunately, We have a lot of chickens. It is very hard to name them and identify them as adults, ecspecially the White Silkies.​
