    I had a broody sitting on 4 eggs, 1 chick hatched, 1 chick died just before hatch, 1 stopped developing about half way through, and 1 egg was not fertile...

    My little chick is healthy and eating loads [​IMG] I thought I had a black chick, but now I think this little chick is a blue.. (which I am over the moon about,
    as my favourate blue chicken sadly died a couple of years ago) [​IMG]

    Could my little chick be blue... the last pic shows the colours better than the rest.

    Either way I dont really care what colour it is as its just soooooo cute [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone [​IMG] I dont mind either way about the sex as I have no roo's, so if its a roo I will be happy, as I would love one [​IMG] then I will have fertile eggs to put in a bator [​IMG] and my excuse would be that I need to make sure it works lol yey more chicks lol

    lol yes, the chick is im guessing a cross between something like a french copper maran/orbington or something along them lines, the lady was not sure who I got my last chicken off, but its such a great chicken I wanted somemore, so got some eggs off her [​IMG] the mummy is a bantam, so the chick will be bigger than her soon lol
