    Got home from work today and there was this chirpping coming from my bator. Apparently the eggs that I thought were due the 21st were due today...

    I got three cute baby chicks out of 5 so far in a totally dry incubator. 2 are EE babies and one came from my cuckoo maran egg. It is a banty size chick with pure black legs and beak so I am guessing it is showgirl X cuckoo maran. I LOVE [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] it!

    Ok here are the three cute fuzzies I found:

    This is the one I'm pretty sure came out of the cuckoo egg. No NN but has the black beak and legs of a silkie. The dad would have been my white showgirl.

    And here are my chicks that hatched a little over a week ago (they are all from my same EE):

    This is my favorite of that group (I love her silver feathers):
