    and here is a link to the hatch I assisted (that poor little one started to unzip, long before any others had even pipped...seems to be doing well in the brooder!!! :) But feel free to give advice/opinions on my assist. :)

    Sooooo MY QUESTIONS ARE:

    This is my first batch of incubating eggs and I'm not sure when they need food and water. I know when I have ordered them from the hatcheries I gave it immediately, but I'm not sure they need it for the first 24 hours???

    Also, anyone with genetics info, the mothers are Easter Eggers and the Father is a Blue Orpington...any guesses on what they might look like as adults?

    Odd...I searched HI AND LOW for an answer via the backyard chicken search...NOTHING came up...I googled the exact same search and a back yard post came up....so I got the answer to food and water...but if someone has ideas on genetics...regarding possible colors I'd love to know...

    mother is a mostly brown/tan with some black easter egger
    father is a blue orpington
