chicks 2012

Here are the chicks from the first hatch 2012
I have 5 Spitz and 12 EO chicks.  It seems this hatch my older eggs didn't hatch too well.

Here's a pic from yesterday.  We had 28C yesterday and humid!  The chick is one of 5 (3EE's and 2 cuckoo marans) from goosey Gail.

Some of us are driven by the need to make animals a part of our lives. We are soothed by their presence, fascinated by their behavior, and amused by their antics.

Re: chicks 2012

got 13 Eos now.  I only had 14 hatch out of 29 fertile EO eggs.  The first chick to hatch bled out and the last chick we rescued out of the egg the rest hatched on time.  I candled all the eggs, didn't see any movement and moved the incubator to clean it up. One egg was peeping when I carried the incubator upstairs so I put it in the brooder and my DW broke it out of the egg it had it's wing over top of his beak.  The one chick that pipped and died pipped right through it's own wing!  The rest were fully developed but didn't even pip.  Over halve of the chicks that didn't hatch had the wing over top of the beak.  I'll have to read through this article again to figure out why I had so many chicks go full term and absorb most of the yolk without piping.

Re: chicks 2012

My wife made the Easter picture, I'll pass on the compliments.  I like it too.  The weather was nice today 20C, sunny but windy.

Re: chicks 2012

Stefan,

Thanks for the article link. It's really good - a bit gruesome though! Helen and I just put eggs in lockdown last night (day 17 since they seem to hatch early). We'll let you know how things turn out - it may add some pieces to your hatching puzzle.

Congrats on the healthy birds that arrived safely - at least you know they are really good, strong stock!

Re: chicks 2012

The dark chicks are the Marans and EE's, the silver chicks the Spitzhaubens and you know the yellows.

The Spitzhauben chicks are growing wings at 2 days old!

What do you think of the down colour of this EO chick?

Re: chicks 2012

I think down colour is cute.  Try and keep track of that one! Maybe you'll get a red/black pullet or a deer? The redder male chicks seem to end up grey if I remember rightly.  =D

Stefan,

Unbelievable! That spitz chick already carries itself like a spitz! It's like it already knows how to wear a crest.... =D

Re: chicks 2012

Lynn has a chick with some dark spots on its head like my pullet. She is turning out to be darker red with some black throughout her body too. It would be good to keep an eye on her. I'm guessing it's a girl.

Haha like I have it all figured out! 
:funny:

Congrats on the hatch, hope they grow up strong and beautiful.

Re: chicks 2012

Gubi my guess would be the brown chick has at least one e-allele for brown (eb) instead of wheaten (ewh).

Re: chicks 2012

PG did you see the two chicks beside the spitz chick above.  They seem to have two lighter yellow stripes on their backs.

Re: chicks 2012

I see that now! I have no idea what would cause reverse chipmunk stripes.  A black dote on the head can be the columbian restrictor gene showing (Co). And generally eb should cause more grey on the back than brown (this is me second guessing myself on that comment). The mahogany allele is not reported to cause any change to the chick down color. So I am really not sure. Others comments about their chicks ending up darker red with some black on them would make sense but it drives me nuts not to know what the genetics of it are!

Re: chicks 2012

The chick with the dark on the back is feathering in way darker then any of the other chicks in that batch.  In my second batch of chicks all of the EO's are yellow except the silkieoiloa which hatched out of a silkie egg, it has a black stripe on it's head.  My suspicion on this chick pictured here that it is a possible welsummer cross.  It has a lot of similarities to a welsummer pullet.
