    Here's some pics of the silkies I hatched in my home made incubator. They are 8 weeks old now and so cute.

    It was a cooler with a light mostly. You can find lots of ideas on the incubating and hatching eggs part of this forum. If I can do it anybody can.[​IMG]

    During the night, someone silently stalked your coop and swiped the partridge chick, transporting him to his new home in Central California. [​IMG] Just kidding! They are all very cute. I have a few that are slightly younger and a bunch more that are quite a bit younger. I remain most partial to the partridge ones but haven't had much luck hatching any. Congrats on your cute flock!

    All so cute but I have to agree with Henrietta, the Partridge is outstanding. The buff looks really good to. I love silkie chicks.
