    Well, I think only 2 are going to hatch. I have one blue and one black. Five of 6 of my buff orps hatched with the 6th one pipped, all three of my EEs hatched, and 2 of 5 of my blrw with 2 still pipped, so I think I'm going to blame the low hatch of the b/b/s orps on shipping. I was hoping for more, but at least I got a couple out of them. I'll post pics tonight once I get them out of the bator.

    Two more hatched while I was at work! So now I got four of Angies fluffy butts. What colors do you think they are? Blues and blacks? All 4 are different chicks.

    How sweet. They both look blue to me. When you see black it is really black and more shiney. Congrats. Now let's hope for pullets or a pair!

    I remember my first hatch of orps. I got 0. And my second - 0. And my third - 0. And my fourth - 0.

    On my fifth hatch I finally got some blue chicks!

    Yeah, you can't tell so much in the pictures, but one of them certainly looks darker than the others in real life. [​IMG]

    Anyhow, I like 'em a lot.
