    2 BLRW and 1 Welsummer from Vicki2x2, hatched 1/7:

    Checking out the new guy...a black mottled bantam cochin, hatched 1/10:


    The little cochin chick is only 3 days younger than the other guys! How teeny tiny, but so adorable! [​IMG]

    I only had 4 eggs from Vicki in the hatcher, so 3 out of 4 is great IMO. And I only had 2 bantam cochin eggs in the hatcher...those eggs were in the priority mail system for 11 days!

    Today's the BLRW and Welsummer's birthdays, so here's a few pics of them at 1 week old!

    This little BLRW is named "Special Ed", or just Ed for short. He has a disorder/deformity that I believe to be wry neck. He's unable to hold his head up in a normal position or keep his eyelid open on his left eye. I struggled with the idea of putting him down, but he's never suffered and has been a true fighter since hatch. He eats and drinks on his own, as well as keeps himself groomed. Other than his appearance, he's completely normal. In this pic, he's taking a snooze after a very eventful morning.

    And this is MC2, a black mottled bantam cochin. Absolutely the tiniest little chick I've ever seen. I put her in the brooder with the big guys (blrw and welsummer) today, and everyone's getting along wonderfully. So this little one won't be growing up alone.

    Here's a pic of the egg this little cochin hatched from (I used the eyeglasses as a size comparison):

    And in this position is EXACTLY how I found it in the bator...almost put itself back together!

    Wellie (Welsummer), Cocoa (BLRW), and Ed (BLRW) are 10 days old today. And DJ (Mottled Cochin) is 1 week old today. Here's some new pics of them. They're all growing up so fast!

    The whole gang:

    Can you believe this is Ed?! [​IMG] He's been showing REMARKABLE improvement over the past few days. He's walking with his head/neck upright and is trying to open his eye. [​IMG] I'm hoping that by continuing with the vitamin/mineral supplement he will eventually be completely normal. [​IMG] I see such an improvement in him every day.:

    Cocoa and DJ:

    Wellie, the friendliest one of them all:
