Today we have three more chicks hatched today. Only one is out of the incubator in the brooder box with the other two chicks. The two silkies are getting bigger and their pin feathers are already beginning to come in. The newest chicks are aracuna/buff orfington(sp?) mixes. One is huge and has legs almost three times the size of the other chicks. I think it might be turkey rather than chicken. It is so ackward and big! I am sad to say that my beautiful white silkie is not show quality. It is missing an important feature for conformation. A fifth toe. 😦 There are approximately 10 more eggs in the process of hatching this evening and it is fascinating to watch.
