Good luck with the hatch! I came upon a few Bielefelder eggs by chance when buying Marans. Of the 14 I hatched we're keeping 3 Wheaten Marans (pullets I think), and 3 Bielefelders (1 Roo and 2 Pullets), So far, at 3 weeks the Bielefelders are super mellow and the roo will even approach my big girls, 4 Buff Oprppingtons although they don't want anything to do with the "kids". Here's pics of the three at 2 weeks. If any Bielefelder experts are out there please comment on the faded "eyeliner" on the blue background pic, should I be concerned?
I can't wait to see them grown! They are developing vivid colors at 3 weeks.
I LOVE Biel chicks! And they really are so very mellow. Even during that skittish 4-weeks of age period when chicks always get jumpy and less social, my Biel chicks remained friendly and affectionate. Enjoy your babies!
