My first buff silkies have hatched! I am quite pleased so far. I have high hopes that these babies will feather out nicely.
They are coming out in two distinct "looks". One is fairly light and the other fairly dark. Clearly I won't know anything until we get grownup feathers, but they are both really pretty.
The really tiny, slightly damp baby hatched this morning. Mama broody wasn't sure what to do with her, so I hauled her inside to the brooder. Other than a propensity to topple over on her back and lay there squeaking, she is doing great.
