    Well, I took a TON of pictures today, but it's late so I'll just post a few... These are the three that I hatched myself. [​IMG]

    Here's their original thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=485383

    Dave is just too cute! Haystack is a big love bug. I'll admit that poor Scuttle gets a little short changed sometimes, but it was hard to take pictures of him/her, always running back and forth!

    Anybody know why Dave is so tiny? Haystack was always the biggest and is just beginning to get feathers, and Scuttle isn't far behind. But little Dave (born with an underbite) has always been the tiniest. When s/he hatched, I don't think all of the yolk was absorbed either ebcause there was a chunk stuck to the egg. I'm also wondering what color Haystack might end up? I'm curious!

    Thanks for looking at the babies. They're growing up fast!

    Dave is just gorgeous!!! Sometimes- like with other animals a runt will hatch- they usually do catch up eventually. Love those two tine feet and legs.. He looks like such a character...the others are cute too of course - I just think Dave is extra cute [​IMG]

    Quote:lol. Thanks! I think it would be neat if Dave stays kind of little, but I do want him to catch up a bit. He kinda gets overlooked, and sometimes run over, by the other two. [​IMG] Such a character though! I can't wait to see how the feathers come in! I wanted to call Dave "Socks", but my brother insisted... Now it's stuck. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] My favorite age! When they get all plump and start growing in their "big boy/girl" feathers, so adorable! I have 2 right now that couldn't be sweeter... makes me sad to think they will soon snub me for their buddies [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone. [​IMG] It would be cool if they were purebred. lol. I think they each have some Pekin in them, and the other half is either Blue Runner or Khaki. [​IMG] They're starting to look so awkward. Hehe. Except Dave. Dave still looks like a baby. I can't believe how differently they look from when they were born!
