Thought it would be neat to see what the first 6 days of growth looked like. Since my silkies hatched out over 3 days, there is a pretty good variation of size. Lucky for me, I seperated them into boxes by their hatchday, so I can easily compare a day 1-3, 4-6, etc. Took these pictures yesterday. Lots of growth for only 6 days.
|From right to left: hatchling, 1 day old and 2 day old|
|6 day old, 2 -5 day olds, 4 day old. Notice how much the day 5 silkies vary in size. There is a variation among all of the days, which I am attributing to hatching earlier or later in the day.|
