We had 5 polish hatch & 7 Silkies. We have decided they are our favorites!!! They finished hatching on Saturday. Sweet little chicks. My 13 year old Daughter has decided that she is the queen of the silkies & they belong to her! I love the polish! ok, i know she isnt a chick but she is cute. our new baby mini-schnauzer. she was sleeping that way. it must be nice. this website has been instrumental in promoting these animals - the chickens - in my life and my family's life. we are so thankful and happy. The chickens are an asset and so much fun to love. i will say this as my only drawback to incubating eggs. we had to put a bad deformed silkie chick down last night and it was miserable for everyone. my poor husband had to do it & he was just devastated. my 13 year old cried like her heart was broken. i dont know if we will be doing it again after the ducks and mixed chick eggs are done 2 weeks. but we will continue to raise and love our chickens!!
