    My first chick hatched! It is a bouncing baby silkie!!!! Yippee! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    For all of you silkie lovers out there, do you think it is a boy or a girl? Just kidding!!!! 6 months of waiting to find out. :) I'm actually happy with either right now!

    They will be so cute all fluffed up! I'm hoping for a few more silkies. Only one more has pipped so far, but hasn't started zipping yet. Then some of my Plymouth rock x any other large rooster champ are also pipped. 11 total set this time, but so far we are off to a good start. :)

    Oh, I love silkies and polish!!! I sold my only polish pair last year, and they write me letters and emails with pictures! I miss them, but they are in a very good home!

    [​IMG] 2 more popped out! Very alert little chicks! I can already see the combs! These two zipped so fast that I missed them! All three are peeping up a storm right now! I have two more that have pipped, and one of them is just starting to unzip. The other 6 aren't showing anything yet, but hopefully they will soon. [​IMG] So excited! Doing the happy Chickie dance!

    I am hatching out Saipans today. They are a very interesting bird.
