The silkies finished hatching last night. I hatched a total of 17. They are pretty cute. There is one black one that is having trouble walking, so not sure if he will thrive. Here are a few more pictures. Boy they don't like posing for pictures! They are drying completely and getting more fluffy.
Update on the giant cochin hatch last week; They are doing well and growing fast. I don't think they will fit in the brooder much longer. Here are a few pics of them, but they all ran away from the flash.
I am having some troubles with hatching in my incubator. The reason is because I am doing staggered hatches. During the last 3 days of an eggs incubation, humidity is supposed to be considerably higher. Well if I am raising the humidity and there are eggs in there that are not hatching right then, it messes them up. So I have made a hatcher. It is a separate incubator to put the eggs into during the last 3 days. This way you can keep one with high humidity and the other where it is supposed to be. Here is a picture of the hatcher and my incubator.
