    My frizzled bantam cochin and silkie eggs from Dipsy Doodle-Do are on Day 9 in my incubator. I just candled.

    And then I died. Dead.

    From cuteness.

    As soon as I put the light to the first silkie egg, the wittle baby chick inside MASHED HIS TEENSY WIDDLE BABY BANTIE-FEETS UP AGAINST THE SHELL.


    And now I am dead. Dead from exposure to tiny wee fetal chick-tracks.

    Aw, how lucky are you?? I at most get a 'stop looking at me' wiggle to the other side of the shell, or an 'I'm to big to move to far' wing flap, but never a teensy weensy foot!

    Just wait until they hatch :p Then you'll really be dead
  4. Like OMG, even from the shell, these evil little cuties are luring the human race into another hatch of thier species.

    It is a invasion, it is a horrid spell binding of cuteness !!

    It was unreal. He had the soles of his little feets pressed right up on the shell, like he was saying, "STOP shining that light on me!"

    MAN, I hope this hatch goes well. [​IMG]

    Soul-stealing on Day 9? Wow. I always thought they waited until they were out of the shell but I guess not.

    Quote:I suggest Kawaii. It means "cute" in Japanese (pronounced like Hawaii, more or less).

    The Silkie has already stolen your soul from INSIDE the shell! I think this is a new record.
