My last incubator hatch is now 4 weeks old and there's now absolutely no doubt that my Biel/Aussie mix is, once again, a cockerel. And like the other Biel/Aussie mixes I've had, though a beautiful bird, he's very lean and not as friendly as most of my other birds. Maybe it's because most of my Australorp girls are also of a more nervous temperament?

Meanwhile, my other Biel/NN pullet is extremely friendly and sweet and perfectly content to perch on my shoulder and chatter away. She was a bit resistant to being photographed though. I guess she worked through her "poser" stage.

I love her blue eye! I know it won't last, but I still love it for now.
