    Thanks! The first hatch in the Coolerbator? They are still too young, they are but 2/3 weeks old, I have no clue who is who yet. I didnt sex them as day olds : (
    However, 8 of the eggs were a friends eggs, so I gave him the chicks and one of our brahma chicks. so its a waiting game! There are still 25+ peeps in the brooder!
    Our Partridge brahmas ended up to be 5 roos and 5 hens though.

    Awesome story, I was wondering how many cockerels and pullets did you offically end up with from your first hatch and did you keep any of them ?
