Post some pics when they hatch! I'm waiting for some bearded whites, blacks, and blues to hatch from Kate Morreale's lines. This is our family project and my 4 year old wants to show, she is so excited for them to hatch!
I believe the bumps on their head are vaulted skulls, that would be my guess.
Maybe someone who knows better can explain what a vaulted skull is exactly.
Some are vaulted, and some aren't. I like the vaulted..more of a puffy look when they grow out.
Here is an 8 wk old chick. Notice that it's primary wing feathers are all tucked up under the wing and only the ends show? I am not an expert but I believe this is a pretty good wing. It should make a smile.
Here is a page of split wing so you can see what it looks like. http://www.hattricksilkies.net/articles_split_wing.html
I haven't noticed my silkies but my layers will bump it and let it drip all over their heads. Kinda like a bath or shower. Just their heads get wet but it makes a mess in the coop. I had to move my layer waterer outside because it was getting damp and stinky under it. lol
She is looking super Cynthia!! I hope she's not really 13 months!!
LOL..did I say months??? NOOOO! She is 13 weeks. Thanks..lol...that would be me, and I can laugh at myself.
So, looks like a she? And what about that split wing thing, now I am wondering if she has it..it doesn't sit back flat like the pictures in that link.
Looks like a girl to me. Pretty!
