    I'm sooo excited, Friday night we had our first pip and then last night our first real hatch!

    I also helped one hatch out (you can read about that and us talking about being chicken parents at my 10 year reunion at: http://freelance4hirephotography.blogspot.com/ )

    Here our a couple of pics. They are silkie babies. I'm guessing they change colors as they grow--cause I've never seen a silkie with racing stripes!

    Ok, how about the yellow ones, what color will they be?

    One of them has yellow and like a black dot on the back of his head!

    And one of the black ones had dark red tinges to him.

    The parents were:
    White male
    and either a red hen or a splash hen.
