    I wanted to test out my bator so gamebirds only sent me an assortment of eggs. They started hatching on friday and I think they are finished.
    I had 15 eggs, 2 were damaged in shipping so I started with 13 eggs. candled and 1 for sure was clear, was left with 12. there were 3 that I could not see clearly enough so i left them in but was pretty sketchy about them/
    Friday the little black bantam hatched then 5 more hatched. there are still 6 in the bator but I dont think there is anything going on in them they were developing but a few look like they quit early and the others I cant see thrhough.
    So this is what I got.
    I do not know for sure what any pf them are . I little bantam didnt make it though the night but there are sure some cuties in there.
    I have another batch that will begin on Wednesday.

    Yeah they area ll sweet. My fave so far is the little black banty. He is so friendly and loves attention. He is full of his self and doesnt realize he is half the size of the others.
    gamebirdsonly if youa re out there , do any of these guys look familiar? LOL.. I am a chick newbie so I really do not know for sure what they are or could be.

    I have read that you shouldn't have babies on newspaper as it is too slippery and can cause leg problems. I use paper towels instead.

    Cute babies! I love the naked neck...I've always wanted one of those [​IMG]

    This was just their little holding pen they were only in there for about 30 minutes They are in another little brooder pen . I just had them in there while I was finishing putting the other in our porch and getting it all set up. Newspaper was only for a few to keep that tub clean for a short while.

    Ok so here is out Possibilities.. The little dark one with the yellow on his face and chest looks langshan, the naked could be a turken/arucana due to the possible appearance of ear tufts. The black with the white topknot either a polish or a houdan, the other little chick looks just like the first one and has feathered feet. So I think he is the same as the other black/yellow one. and the black bantam ,silky..
    Oh and they all came from brown eggs except for the black with topknot ,., he was in a white egg,
