Hi!

 

I didn't get any of the brahma to hatch, but such is the problems with shipped eggs. 

 

My cream legbars did hatch and were easy to sex at hatch. I gave the roos and one hen to my sister-in-law and kept a hen for myself. She just began laying last month and her eggs are a very brilliant blue. She is a shy bird that has not warmed up to me and lower in the pecking order in my mixed flock. My sister-in-law's hen started laying earlier than mine, also with a blue egg. She butchered the roos last fall as she raises for meat.I did not keep any roos as I cannot have any where I live.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks so much for responding.  All in all, do you still recommend these folks for hatching eggs?

Yes! I love Papa's Poultry. He is great with communication and when you order with the Black Friday deals its awesome.

 

On that note, if you are looking for Rocks I just had a wonderful hatch from DMRippy (a member here). Had 14 of 17 hatch, which is amazing for shipped eggs. And he has blue rocks! I hope some of the blues I hatched are girls.

I have 9 brahma, 5 cream legbars, 7 blue laced red wyandottes from Papas Poultry in the incubator now.  I only ordered 4 of each so he was very generous.  I am hopeful as I am using my brand new incubator and it seems to be holding temp and humidity really well.  What combination is a blue rock?
