    Ok . Like I said I have no idea what color any of this hatch will be - unless the orps hatch. None of the others are pure color. The 3 orps are buff.

    Cute!!! I want a paint or splash chicken of some sort.


    Buffs are pretty. My little egg started zipping down the center if the egg towards the pointy end. So I pulled it out to see if it was alive...it is...and it still has blood in the membrane so wrapped it a paper towel and we wait some more.

    So....HE (not happy but of course my luck) was malpositioned. He started to zip down the center of the shell towards the pointy end. So I had to assist him because he stopped and could not go any further. I thought he was missing a wing because I did not see it. It was tucked underneath his body. He is resting right now and I'm just waiting for him to kick the shell off.

    Well I'm now up to 8 in the brooder. 2 that pipped zipped and stuck. I have opened them up a bit but they don't look quite ripe yet.
    I have 2 others pipped and 1 more cheeping.
    The remain 8 eggs aren't doing anything yet.

    Of the 12 eggs I brought the only one to make it to the brooder was an Aracuna, and I didn't really need those got I ended up with free EE eggs that are closer to the spec I want than the aracuna. I have hopes for the frizzle that is 3/4 out of the egg. - if it's still alive tomorrow it should be ready to remove the last of the egg and be finished enough to go to the brooder. Hopefully the Dorking that is peeping comes out without any issues. I think the remaking silkie egg might not be going to hatch as the rest of the silkies have been in the brooder for at least 6 hours.
    I hope they come out silkie feathered as the dad is like 3 gens removed from that. Looks like I might get some good combs though.

    That's good though to have an actual true aracauna

    You're not getting any AM eggs until you get that Brinsea [​IMG]

    Congrats! You are definitely red. Mine usually have a few wing feathers growing in before they hit the brooder [​IMG]
    I feel for you on that roof. This summer is miserable. When I disappeared Saturday, it wasn't only because of silkie. I got overheated loading the lumber and had a severe migraine for the rest of the night
    Yep, definitely red
