    These are my four new little silkies, just hatched yesterday and today! I'm guessing I have two white, a blue, and a splash, but I do not know for sure. One might be black instead?

    Priscilla - hatched a day early, still a bit sticky despite my efforts to clean her up

    May - one of two little devils that woke me up at 2:30 in the morning with loud peeps announcing their arrival

    Elena - May's early morning accomplice

    [​IMG]
    Cheepers - last to hatch but well worth the wait, fluffiest butt of them all

    And a few group shots...

    Cheepers is such a ham! Next project is to try hatching Cream Brabanters and Blue Laced Red Wyandottes. My silkie eggs were picked up locally (though only 4 out of 12 showed any development), but these next batches were shipped. Wish me luck! And thanks for the awesome website. [​IMG]
