    What is a sapphire gem?

    I truly was in denial, even though his comb and waddle made a statement! Then the noises came...lol...still tried to deny. Finally, I had to figure out what I was going to do. I am looking at some 6 week old pullets this weekend. Quarantines and integration is the next part of this experience...

    What is a sapphire gem?

    Does anyone have current pictures of their roo? Because he was white-dot-less and darker, I'm not 100% sure he is SG. It's been a fun, yet confusing few months, for sure!!

    What is a sapphire gem?

    Hey there! I posted a pic on another thread, and was pointed in this direction. My daughter brought home a chick that was supposed to be a sexlinked sapphire gem pullet back in March. She, I mean he, is such a good chicken. lol I wanted to share these pics with y'all!

    Help with my blue roo!

    I have been combing (haha) through pictures on Google. He doesn't seem to be as fluffy as an Orpington looks...as of yet.. But, are blue Australorps popular in the US? They both seem wonderful (great mix up, if he is one). I'd love to find some pullets!

    Well, she is a rooster...

    I wanted to update everyone that commented. Thank you all, as well. Smokey was great while we were gone! He is such a fine boy. I am now working on finding him a few more gals. I posted in the "what breed" section about him. I would like some input about that and what type of pullets I should...

    Help with my blue roo!

    My handsome fella was bought at TSC in TN. I believe the hatchery they use is Hoovers. My daughter supposedly brought a "sapphire gem" sexlinked chick home, along with a golden comet. Our first chicken experience with 2 future egg laying hens. lol Luckily, he is a wonderful cockerel! Social...

    ~The Sapphire Gem~ A Breed's Chat Thread

    Hello all. My sapphire gem chick that I bought at TSC was supposed to be a pullet, but HE is not. lol He is a good boy though. I'm wondering if anyone else has a roo and has pictures to share?

    What should I do?

    I'm sorry to hear about your chick. I'm in MidTn also. I just posted about one of my 2 pullets being a cockerel. (Well, she is a rooster...) I'm thinking about adding started pullets to give me 4 gals to 1 boy. He is starting to get hormonal. They are 15 weeks old. Let me know what you decide...

    Oh, I know. Stressing a bit. She doesn't, other than what I explained on Monday...

    Well, she is a rooster...

    Tell me that I am being impulsive and need to chill... I may have found a hatchery in MTn with started pullets...12 weeks old. (Poultry Hollow). Found this by searching started pullets TN. (Love this forum already!) I add 3 this weekend. Introduce them over the next before we leave. Good or bad...
