    Hello, I am going to use this thread to update on my babies. I have 21 older chickens which include, 1 speckled sussex, 1 barred rock hen, 4 reds, and 11 black sex links, 2 silkies i roo and 1 hen, and 2 barred rock roosters. For the oldest babies I got 2 buff orpingtons, 2 australorps and 1 delaware, 2 EE's and 3 mixed babies, and 1 silkie babie.Very few will actually have names, as I don't want to get attached. And now for the pics:

    But this is Delly/ Dellie

    The first guy hatched Monday the rest hatched Tuesday. The black ones are barred rock (father) x black sex link. All three have white spots on their heads think that could mean roo? The white chick is a silkie. Her toes didn't straighten out so we had to help her with that, but flatting them and attaching them to cardboard. She gets along better on the cardboard, then with her own the feet. The poor baby coud barely walk.
