They are mostly Bantam crosses, but they are so sweet!
I picked up 5 quail to start breeding as well.
I'll hopefully have some blue Swedish/Pekin cross duckling soon as well! Here's a pic of my newly acquired Cayuga duckling.
YAY! Ameraucana babies!
That's good egg color for wheatens. Most people have no issue with hatching those for BCMs as well but you know my penchant for the darkest egg color.
I'm only hatching a very small amount of chicks since I'm choosing only my 2 darkest layer's eggs to hatch. It will be a while before I know if I have extra boys and I promised KMolly a roo first. I don't know why everyone wants roos this year but they do. I've had a couple requests for roos since you asked me. I doubt I can fill all these requests but I'll keep your friends in mind if I have a roo heavy year like last year (I hope not though, I need some more dark egg layers).
I don't recommend starting with only 1 cockerel though. I chose the 2 best out of 15 boys. It just seems so hard to find all the best qualities required of any roo responsible for a breeding program. IDK maybe I'm being too picky?
