    They're growing so fast! I have tons of pictures that I took on Saturday. Group pictures and individual! We'll start with the individual pictures!:)

    Here is the first hatched, we've named him Number One...I know, incredibly original. You will notice in most of the pictures he has his beak wide open and his screaming for his mother!:):

    The second hathced is Mr. Frizzle. We have no idea if he is a boy or not, but we're pretty sure he has the frizzle mutation:

    Number three to hatch was Stripe. We named him that because he has a stripe down his back...again, very original!:) He almost died because when he hatched, we were at work and his mom and the first two chicks were taking a walk around the bedroom where she first hatched them out. We got there and found him cold and not moving much and Jon warmed him up and saved him! Out of all the chicks, he's the quietest and yells for mom the least. I think that's because he was held the most so soon after hatching.

    The fourth to hatch is Scarface. For whatever reason, Millie refused to take care of number four and five and even got a little violent with them. Scarface has a little scar above his left eye where Millie nipped him. He and his brother, Chocolate, had to be separated and are in their own box with a growth light to keep them warm.

    The fifth and last one to hatch is Chocolate and he's just the cutest little thing. His colors are just gorgeous! We think he's going to be a frizzle too.
