We had 8 of our eggs hatch, 2 of those died.
They both had deformities or something going on.
We ended up buying 3 Silkie chicks and 2 Black Star Pullets (the Black Star are hens).
We hatched one Silkie, 2 Buff Orpingtons, and 3 Americaunas or Wyandottes--not sure which!
The kids are having fun with them--and I am, too! They are so fun to watch!!
Above is a Silkie named Blue.
