This is for The other Mary and any other interested parties....
Picks of my New Years Day Hatch 2012 chicks.
First up the only two surviving Swedish Flower Hen chicks. I'm guessing female on the left, male on the right.
Next up, group shot at the feeder. Lots of blacks, whites and chipmunks.
This brownish-black Icelandic is a tad weird, it hardly has any feathers and the ones that it does have are WEIRD!
Next, an Icelandic with white on it's wings... I'm guessing ROO!
Next, the SFH.. ?Male?... notice the orange and white feathers coming in?
Next the only pure bred wheaten Ameraucana from my coop prior to roo loss.. I'm guessing pullet.
One of 7 chipmunk Icelandics
The blue and white one on the left is named "29"... as it was the last chick out...saved by my little girl because I was about to toss the egg and she said she heard a peep in the egg. I pipped it and it was out not long after that. It's mama is a big FBCM and the daddy was Fred, the Splash Wheaten roo. Should be a pretty Olive Egger but it's looking rooish to me.
And the Lavender Ameraucana from bargain's eggs. All but two of the eggs she sent went into Meg's bator and they all got fried. The two I kept hatched, one a purebred Lavender and the other a black EE. I'm guessing the Lavender is a roo. Should a get him decrowed and start a Lavender Wheaten project?
There you go. Off to candle the 36 eggs in my bator for the Ground Hog's Day Hatch.
