I recall that one of my milles had what appeared to be barring, too.
We have pippage! Both of the D'Anver x lav Cochin eggs were pipped first thing this morning on Day 19. Can't see any others pipped. It surprised me! Now, we get to see who was the daddy-could be a different sire for each chick, I suppose.
So, black means either Rufus or Rusty is the sire. Lavender means either Aubrey or Angus is the sire. Seems simple enough. I can't wait! Oh, there was a little girl about 3 years old in the dr. office with her grandparents this morning. Talk about perpetual motion! She was the cutest thing. Her name was Aubrey, LOL.
