We have our first chick of 2010!

Here it is - a quick succession of photos recording the hatching of our first Silkie chick of the year, partridge coloured, same as mum. It's also our first 2nd generation chick for Frugaldom. :)

Eggs begin hatching


Here comes our first Silkie chick


It's up and about already, watching the camera through the viewing panel!

Hopefully, this first one will hurry along the second one and encourage the third egg to hatch. I'd love it to hatch because I'm not 100% sure which of the hens laid it, we just assumed it was another Silkie. If it hatches, I won't know until I count it's toes, as Silkies have 5 toes whereas the others all have only 4.

Chickwatch in full swing at http://www.frugaldom.co.uk/ tonight - egg 3 just pipped! Yeah!
