    Hi :welcome both of you @KirstieJG Those are some gorgeous babies and birds you have there. Have loved looking through your pics!! Yes it can be addictive, I've just had my fourth hatch this year of polish and some polish x chicks. Can't wait to get the incubator back on again :oops: @heidiammar What breed have you got? Have you just started out keeping chickens? I love raising chicks, it's so much fun.

    The polish are beautiful. Do you have pics?

    The dark chicks in the photo are from a polish hen. I havent got into genetics but I find it interesting. The mum of these was a light speckled polish and the dad is a peking. The light chick is from the same dad but a white silkie, he/she doesnt seem to have the silkie feathers though.

    Welcome to the thread! Sorry but I don't any breeders of silkies who vaccinate against mareks. Good luck though :fl



    Hi :welcome

    I have not had bluebells before but do have some polish bantams. What breed of bantams do you have? Have you had them long or have you just started out?

    HI

    Just started out and we got the 2 bluebells and 2 bantams about 5 weeks ago, we are not sure what breed bantams are one looks like a pheasant and the other is a small black one, we also bought yesterday 2 Orpington cuckoo lemons which are about 12wks old and are so cute [​IMG]
