Silkie breed chicks hatching today at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC! On the left are the newly hatched chicks with some duck eggs that Farmer Mary was picking up while she was moving the bbay chicks this morning . On the right in the photo the chicks are now under a red colored heat lamp in a brooder where they will live for the next six weeks or so.  They hatched under a broody hen (unrelated) who is still setting on a few more eggs.  The father is solid black in color and the mother is blue and gray.
