    These were hatched by my white broody silkie hen - we actually have three white hens - who have taken up sharing the care for the chicks. And they don't fight over them. It's so cute seeing all three clucking to them showing them goodies and such.

    They hatched out about a month ago - I finally got some pics posted. I got the eggs from a BYC member - had them shipped - 4 out of the 7 hatched so I was happy. If I end up with roosters, you'll see them posted here .... I'll get more pics of them soon - they are in that funny looking stage right now with half their feathers coming in and half still chick fuzz. They look like they have a "poodle" cut [​IMG]
    LOL
