Here's my first set of hatchlings. I have two duck eggs, some cornish/Aseel eggs, and 2 pipping babies still in the incubator but wanted to go ahead and post these. I left the incubator off all night by mistake in the very beginning and I worried all was lost. However, these all made it and I'm thrilled. There are RIR, BO, 1 Ameraucana, 1 OEGB (my favorite b/c he's/she's such a tuff little guy and showed up a day early), black copper marans, and cuckoo marans. I'm not sure how to tell the difference between the BCM and CM as they hatched at the same time and I couldn't track which egg they came from. They all have feathered feet, but some have more white than the others. I also get confused the RIR and BOs, but I think the yellows are BO and the orange/redish chicks are RIR.
