    This is funny because he got his head stuck in the shell and I had to help him

    Very cool and SO cute!!! [​IMG] I have hatched out hundreds of silkies and other birds and it just never seems to get old! [​IMG] Just be careful--that mama hen seems sweet and gentle, but silkies have a, "soft spot" on their heads which if pecked at can cause neurological issues. Thanks for sharing the video!

    Oh they are doing fine, they were born on Nov 16th and I had a separate batch of 5 frm the bator born on 29th of Nov. So now I have a house full but has been lots of fun.
    Here are the pics from the ones that were born on the 16th with the broody bantam and from last night strutting their stuff with momma hen seeing herself as another hen in mirror.

    Sorry for so many pics but I'm so proud since these are from my own silkies and only second time using the bator with only one lost.
