    I purchased cuckoo silkie eggs, 5 of which hatched. They look blue right now. I had added one of my own eggs that happened to be laid from my paint flock when I was setting these, making a total of 6 adorable chicks! [​IMG] Here are some pictures taken today of them, all were hatched on New Year's Day except on that hatched the next morning:
