    Here are the 3 babies I managed to hatch my first try. 2 of these are from Dipsey's eggs~~really strong little sweeties! [​IMG]

    I just noticed today that the littlest fellow has 5 toes! What does that mean?

    Dipsey do you think they might frizzle or is it too early to tell? I love them anyway they turn out!

    So far they're getting along just fine with their huge buddy, Goldie. When I let them out of the brooder for play time they fly and jump at each other like mad. It's so funny!

    Group Shot--Lucky is in the foreground, Crusty in the middle and Goldie is in the back.

  2. Hi Becky! They are all cuties! Is Goldie the same age? She's so big [​IMG]
    Bad news --- they are both smooth. And they both look like cockerels to me.
    The extra toe is from the Silkie in their background. Some of the Frizzle girls are Cochin x Silkie crosses so that makes those chicks with extra toes and / or dark skin (Cochin x Silkie) X Cochin.

    Thanks, Dipsey! I sort of thought they act a little rooish.

    Goldie actually hatched out a day after your two. She came from Pidgey and is probably a wyandotte cross.

    Looking forward to the next batch!
