    YAYYY, this morning another 5 had hatched and i got home from school and there is now 9!!! and one is still hatching!! they are so so CUTE and TINY.
    and, and, and..... ONE HAS FLUFFY LEGS [​IMG] ive always wanted a hairy legged chook [​IMG]

    Mrs fluffy puffy: they are cream legbar X friesian (if thats what she is). three of the dark chicks have the legbar marking on them where i 'think' i read are auto sexing. so im off surfing the net to find out more........

    Will have pics of the rest tomorrow (camara was out of battary today!! ahhrr)

    She up to 10 now!! they are all so sweet.
    I dont think the last one will hatch as it it not showing any signs and mummy hen is getting off her nest more often now. but 10/11 thats great, im so proud of her.
    Ive taken lots of pics so will upload them later when im home from school [​IMG]

    -also it looks like the babies with the legbar gene from my roo are girls [​IMG] woohoo and theres a really fluffy fat one who i think will be a roo. also about 3-4 of them have FLUFFY LEGS wooohooo!!

    I am so so happy [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
