    Hi, Im new (very new!) to this site and to the world of chicks, so this is a fantastic forum for help I need.
    Anyway... Out of 6 eggs 3 hatched, they are the fuzziest grey things Ive ever seen, I was expecting the "normal" fluffy yellow chicks.
    Im addicted already!

    This was the first to hatch, after it was left in the incubator to dry out, like I said I now have 3, they hatched within an hour of eachother, theyre in the brooder now. They are very sweet and I am suprised how sociable they are.
    Im definatly a chicken fan now!

    Beautiful little baby! You really have no idea what they might be? I am certainly no expert by any stretch of the imagination but could they possibly be Self Blue something or others? I LOVE that baby's color!

    Thanks I love the colour too!
    they were hatched from blue eggs, my brother in law has an allotment to keep his chickens, this is the first time he wanted to hatch some and asked me to do it, Ill be VERY suprised if he gets them off me lol
