Ice cream. Yum.
Well we are starting to look for new homes for our cockerls. I'm trying to put in an advertisement on here but I don't have very much time and I still have to get it up.
Why did they decide to be boys?
I can believe it! It's rewarding enough to raise them into adulthood, but hatching would raise it up to a whole new level.
What breeds turned out to be cockerels, again? I have a very bad memory. I'm so sorry you're having to part with your beautiful little boys..... I know it's not enough, but please accept a virtual hug.
Yes it certainly is! The very first time I did it I was very inexperienced so none of them formed, but the second time I had done all of my research and stuff so we gave it a go again. We put 4 eggs in and 3 hatched! The other one never formed, but for my first time and I got three, I was so excited, seeing all of your hard efforts and time and seeing them hatch is so rewarding. Watching baby chicks hatch in front of you is so exciting and breathtaking too! Now we have two hens from that first batch, and they have been laying their own eggs for a year now! (3rd one was a roo) It's just absolutely an amazing experience!
New Hampshire Red
Black copper maroon
These are the ones i'm positive of. Some others are suspicious, but we are going to wait until we are sure. The new hamp. and ee bantam are already starting to crow and the new hamp. has shiny rooster feathers! Their only 2 months old!!! Aww thanks.
