My singleton is staying with us no matter what. smile.png A few of the Silkies are definitely looking more and more boyish, but I'm hoping my inexperience with Silkies proves me wrong! We want to keep our Slimy Bob.

 

Mine or OEGB, sebright and silkie mixes. You can tell the little roos apart REALLY early, and I hear it works the same with seramas. My Little Dude was crowing at a week of age, when he was still up in my room in the brooder!

This one does look like a rooster

My peahen just cracked me up so I was sharing. She hatched a few months ago!

 

I hope your little hatchling is okay.

 

And your peahen is awesome!

I want my own pea pair. I just cant justify that big of an investment yet.

Your peahen is beatiful.

I'm hoping to start Pea-fowls next year in the spring. We'll see how that goes. Gotta convince the DH still.

Every day is a gift... enjoy it...

Thanks. I bought her from BYC members egg auction. I have some more in the incubator now but the air cells were all detatched from shipment. So, crossing my fingers for just one!!!

Thats cool. The eggs are so expensive. And I would need to build a serious pea home first.
Fingers crossed that some hatch.
