    Day 20 and we have new babies! Silkies (parents are a black hen and blue roo) and bantam Orps (parents are both blue). The 1st Orp is a splash I'm pretty sure..he is very light creamy with a gray tint and the 1st silkie is very dark but, not sure if he is black or blue. My wife was sending me pics on my cell phone all day. I will get pics ASAP....2 more have pipped (1 silkie and 1 orp) and have 7 more that have not pipped yet. I'm SO excited!
