Hello everyone, I bought a couple of blue wheaten/wheaten ameraucana and Golden Cuckoo Marans fertile eggs from Melissa(Pasofino) about a couple of weeks ago and put them all in the bator. They were soo beautifull and couldnt wait till they hatched but after soo much work and waiting, it has paid off, a baby hatched! I had one ameraucana chick hatch. It is soo cute, I think it might be a blue wheaten Ameraucana being a whiter/light color. It is somewhat cute to see how she is the only one that hatched( i am hoping it is a female!) and is soo smart! I am still waiting to see if the other eggs hatch but I put them all in the same date so I am guessing either they are just delayed or they never developed. I cracked one that didnt looked developed and it was all scrambled up. I am kind of sad though when I see her because I puchased a decent amount of both Ameraucanas and Marans and was hoping to see some marans and more ameraucanas but I just dont know where I went wrong or why this happened when I have had such great hatchings from my pekin ducks. I am not dissapointed though because I atleast got one baby! But would like to try again. Thanks again Melissa for your help and for those beautiful eggs. Here is a picture of the chick after it hatched and was completely dry...what do you guys think it is? a female or male? blue wheaten/wheaten? i will let you guys know if any other of the eggs hatch which I am hoping because I did spend on the eggs and other equipment(high lume candler in home depot to see those dark eggs!) and because I have been waiting for such a long time to finally have some ameraucana and marans hatch. But lets see! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
