A day early, but big and healthy so far! One more has pipped. 2 more look promising. These were from eggs that were over 2 weeks old before they went into the incubator, so it was a chance hatch from the begining. Question for silkie owners. I think this one might be a partridge. I am used to seeing polish chicks hatched with the lighter skin. The chick looked very dark blue at first but now I can see lighter orangish streaks in the wet feathers. This one has the typical black skin. What do partridge colored silkies look like when they hatch?
