    Marge, our "Silkhorn," is a mother for the first time! [​IMG] (And this is the first time we let a broody hen do the work.)

    The babies are supposed to hatch throughout the rest of this week a day apart, so far we have two lucky ones that are too cute! We have a Black Silkie and a Brahma/New Hampshire Red/Silkie (Not sure yet, I will take another good look at it.) I will post pictures hopefully soon; the babies are resting for now.

    EDIT: Here's a picture of the mother - she's the one in the front.
