Been absent lately. But I just read 180812813980980 posts and am all caught up!
Funny thing yesterday. I hatched 11 chicks out of 20 eggs in early March and so far I have 6 roosters, perhaps as many as 8. If I didn't have bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck. Well I have been meaning to get rid of these 2 roosters but they are so darn nice. Yesterday a certain governmental employee was inspecting my property with a collegue or bodyguard or something. I have jokingly said "well you can have those 2 roosters if you want them" and he took them.
Now if I can find some one who is really knowledgeable about Ameracauna's, I can figure out whether my last hatchlings who are now 10 weeks old are male or female! Then I can go back to hoping and praying that my neighbors aren't complaining to the township, grrrr.
