    Overall the hatch rate wasn't great...11 of 28, but it beats nothing! 40% hatch rate...not bad for the first attempt!

    All,

    Also what do you think I should name my only Japanese Bantam? I was thinking Ronin since he's the only one. (I am a fan of Japanese history). Here are some other ideas...

    Shogun -- military ruler of Japan [​IMG]
    Daimyo -- ruler of a family or province
    Ronin -- Lone Samurai with no master...wave-runner
    Bakemono -- Little Goblin
    Prius -- Just Kidding [​IMG]
    Amateratsu -- Sun God of all of Japan (in ancient times)
    Ashigaru -- Peasant Warrior who kicked butt
    Tomodachi -- Buddy
    Banzai -- BANZAI


    Any more ideas????

    oh, they are soooooo adorable. And that little one is extra cuteness in a small package.
    I like Ronin- Lone samurai with no master. .. It seems like it'll fit that adorable teeny fuzzybutt

    Ronin also means 'little seal' in Irish. It's on our baby name list. [​IMG]

    I vote for Samurai. Call it Sammi for short.
    Congrats on the hatch [​IMG]

    Yeah I like the little guy the best. He is my smallest chick and he goes up to the leghorns and gets underneath them like they were hens and he was a...well...baby chick. Its funny and adorable all at the same time.

    I WANT MORE!
