    OK, this is a revisit to a post I had submitted, and I just wanted to add my pics!

    My silkie hen, UhOh hatched out 6 chicks wednesday night(of course) and thursday night(you knew it had to be)... She's in my bedroom, doing well and so are the babies. We've had some close calls....
    The last egg she kicked out of the nest, and then pooped on the poor thing! And I'm talking tennis ball sized!(she saves it up [​IMG] ) So I took the egg out, and it was cold! I washed it gently in warm water, and dried it. Then I heard peeping! Yahoo! So I stuck it back ubder my hen, and 12 hours later their was the little black cochen cross. All hatched, safe so far and sound!

    Not the greatest pics yet, but that's just an excuse to take more, right?
