    What a hatch! [​IMG] They are super cute. I set a dozen eggs under our first time broody silkie exactly 20 days ago. I got the eggs through the mail from a breeder. I candled on day 10 and 100% had shown nice development. We were super happy about that. As of 5 minutes ago 8 had hatched, the 4 others have pipped and zipped! Looks like we will have a 100% hatch on these little ones. [​IMG] "MOM" is doing a great job, she is a sweet little girl to us, and she seems equally sweet with the chicks. If these little babies look like the pictures of the parents they will be awesome! Here are some pics of Mom and her babes:

    How sweet! There's nothing like chicks with a Mama hen. I'm so glad she's made you a good broody. Congratulations on such a great hatch!
