    I have six new babies today! Three Aracauanas and 3 buff orps from hinkjc!

    The first one to hatch came out with its yolk sack and intestine (?) hanging off and died this morning. The last one to hatch has a small bit of yolk still out, but hopefully that will absorb soon.

    How can I tell if the aracaunas will have tufts? I can't seem to tell, or even if they'll have tails for that matter!? [​IMG]

    Here's pics of the new fuzzies!!
