    I don't have pics yet, but I had a broody hatch a couple of babies last night that are the size of quail babies! They are my tiny little Frizzle/Sizzle girls and I've never seen babies this tiny before. One has mommies 5 toes but instead of being black like her and the black Frizzle roo it's very pale yellow! The others are black and white. Red the RIR is hatching these tiny little things and crushed 2 unfortunately, these two survived because the right momma had them. There was a crushed egg but it was moving so I picked it up and there was baby in it! I peeled the egg off and it probably should have hatch yesterday but it's in the house now under a heat lamp.

    Next to a couple of quarters and nickel, the yellow one has 5 toes, the black ones don't.
