    First I will start with my first successful hatch. They are told apart by use of fingernail polish on their toes (Thanks for the idea Miss P!). They are posted in order of hatch. First is their newborn pic and then their 13 day old pic.

    Quote:I had to buy it too. The only stuff in this house was the kids version! They do have it in packages of small bottles.

    BTW-You guys were quick. I was resizing the pics and you found this thread!

    Well, Katy, we're hatching buddies! That Orp I had already dug a hole for (figuratively) is rallying and getting around the bator. Will wonders never cease! Amazing how resilient these chicks can be.

    Quote:If I had to sex them right now, I would say that one is a roo. It is not feathering out as fast as the others are and if I understand it correctly that can mean it is a roo.

    Hmmm a new line of exclusive "Chickenique Nails" nail polish. Sparkles can be added and of course helpful pedicure hints... [​IMG]
