    My beautiful mystery bantams are still mixing it up! I have an incubator full of their eggs, so I can share with you!

    The roo and his hen are the smooth splash offspring of a silkie x frizzle cochin line (I think!). They have feathered feet and 5 toes. The other hen is an amazing chocolate color, but I don't know what she is. But she is so sweet and BEAUTIFUL in person. I have yet to hatch any chicks, so I have no idea what is going to come out. Hence, the "mystery."

    The first chicks are starting to hatch. I will post pictures if they hatch before the post ends.

    Yes! I had one out yesterday:

    He has the feathered feet and 5 toes

    The other just came out and is still wet:

    But he has darker skin (black actually) and appears to have a lighter color fluff. It is hard to tell, though. No word on the feet/toes because I don't want to take him out yet.

    Aren't they cute???

    Unfortunately, the wet chick did not make it. I decided to help him out of his shell after he stalled pipping for 36 hours. I figured that he wasn't going to make it in his shell so I tried to help. Poor little one. I did a staggered hatch, so I don't have any due to hatch for a few more days.
