    Baby (Miracle) was the first and only chick I've hatched in an incubator. I had ordered some buff eggs and because it was my first time and also because of a very unfortunate incident with one of my curious cats knocking the incubator off the shelf, this little girl (I HOPE!) was my sole survivor. I had to actually help Baby hatch. I was so scared but I was more scared that she wasn't going to make it. Here are some pictures of baby and how she has grown:

    This was Baby right after hatch...poor little thing was a mess.


    This was Baby a couple months ago. I had posted because I was concerned about her goofy looking wings.

    This is Baby now, at almost three months!! LOVE her! She has turned out beautifully and is my sole buff silkie. She is so special to us.

    Thanks for reading my little "story."
