    Per request, you all wanted to see pics.


    This is THE sweetest and tamest lil chick I have ever seen, loved being picked up and cuddled. [​IMG]

    After I found this one, I took the other eggs as well, and lil miracle has a buddy that has hatched, the lil tiny 1/2 bantam.

    The big blue is frozen miracle child. [​IMG] Oh and the very slightest foot feathering, so not 100% orp, but my splash orp roo is definitely the daddy.

    Yea, tho for the life of me I cannot figure the parentage on that lil tiny thing. Its only one day younger, and I had to help it as I took all the eggs and put them under my house broody, then thought I better check them as I didnt want an explosion of a bad egg.

    All the other eggs were rotten, so good thing I did, but this lil one was alive and just hadn't pipped.

    I only have three bantams and all of them are white or brown. If it had silkie in it, even a bit, wouldnt it have five toes? Its only got the normal four. So I am really puzzled as daddy is a splash orp and it came from a white/cream colored egg.
