    I took my new babies out for the first time today to explore. The dad is a barred rock, and the moms are aussies and BR's. Yet, for some reason, one of the chicks hatched out very white [​IMG] she's super cute and very sweet. There's also a blind chick in the mix.

    Thanks everyone! [​IMG] This is my first time hatching eggs out of an incubator (i've had broody hens do it for me before) and i've hatched 7 out of 7 so far [​IMG] with one more due thurs. or friday. Does anyone have any experience with blind chicks though? I'm trying to do what's best for him. He's figured out where the food is and stumbles every once in awhile to the waterer on his own. Any advice would be great!

    I haven't had any experience with them awheel, but I think if you do a search, a lot of others on here have. Good luck with him/her!
