By birth order- Scout, Daisy, Snowflake, Rocky, Ruthie, Wilbur, Charlotte, Sunny & Sky.
All of these names are temporary "nicknames" until we figure out who's a boy and who's a girl.
All are doing well now, though Rocky and Sunny gave us a little scare. Both had a small amount of bleeding from their umbilical area just after hatching, and Rocky had some dried-on membrane stuck to his neck and right wing that kept him from walking properly for the first few hours.
It also looks like we have at least a few silkies in the bunch. Charlotte and Rocky both have extra toes and Snowflake has the blue/black silkie skin, but only 4 toes, so we're not sure about her.
Everybody is happy and healthy and peeping their little brains out. And now I feel like Spring really is here. Better late than never! :)
