    Well, out of 30 eggs, I've only had 13 to hatch. Well, 14, but it died before it could completely hatch. There were 10 eggs in the bator, 2 I was 100% positive were dead, and they were. The other 8 will probably come out in the morning.
    Day 21 was Monday. Anyway, here they are!

    The black/brownish colored ones are crosses between my Buff Orpington and my black australorps and speckled sussex. I had one full Buff hatch, and the other 3 (4?) are from MissPrissy's eggs.

    The reddish one is the one I'm not sure of. It hatched overnight with a couple of others, so I'm not sure if it is one of MP's eggs or mine.

    MP - tell me what you think (besides the fact that they're beautiful!!!) Tell your girls thank you for me!!!

    The buff isn't mine. LOL

    The other 3 - the 1st and last might be light blue. The 2nd might be splash. It is hard ot tell in photos. If it is a dirty white it is splash. Ifit is a light silvery it is usually light blue.

    Congrats on your babies. Those things sure can be hard to hatch!

    MissPrissy - LOL - I thought that it was one of mine, but since I had several hatch overnight, I was not 100% sure. I belive that one is a cross between my Buff Roo and Sussex Hen. Thanks for clearing up the other 3!

    Congrats on your new babies, they are adorable. I had 6 out of 12 hatch under a hen recently as I don't have an incubator. I let her hatch them and she let me take them from her. She's a lovely hen. I love having babies.[​IMG]

    Quote:That lil' chick is beautiful! The pic does not do it justice. It's a dark silvery color right now.

    We lost one over night.

    I was a little worried about this one to begin with. It started out very slow coming around after hatching, and there was a lot of the "white" part of the egg left on it's body when it did hatch. R.I.P. little one. Know that you were loved the time you were here.
