just got two pekins, my little girl sat on eggs off ebay and they were duds, so i managed to get two little pekins that were 2 days old and she has happily exceped them.
now not had pekins before, can you tell at an early age if these will be boys or girls.
or do i have to wait until they crow.
hello, i have 6 eggs from ebay that my silver laced wyandotte is sitting on at the moment.
never had large breed before or orpington bird.
i have heard they are a gentle breed that is why i thought of going with them.
what i don't know is do they scratch up the garden badly, as they are a heavy...
my silver laced wyandotte has hatched two lavender araucana chicks, they are 3 weeks old now, they seem to be doing a lot of chest bumping i hope this is not a sign of them being two cockerel. when they first hatched i thought hen and cockerel because the one had a a tuft on his head like before...
mum is a warren and dad lavender araucana, the warren hen has large wattles could she pass this down to this bird, or is this a cockerel, it’s 14 weeks old. this is mum and dad.
this is the baby now 14weeks
my little lavender araucana x with a warren has become a very pretty bird, she is black with a speckled brown bib with green tint plumage coming. what colour eggs do you think she will lay, as my araucana lay blue eggs.
the first lot of baby chicks are settled. now the second brood are out with the flock, so far so good. i have another mum on one little chick that hatched this morning. really don’t need any more chicks. i will have to stop them sitting next year.
the dad is a lavender araucana and the mums are warrens. they have hatched some really sweet birds the black one has the tufts on the side of the face growing. i think the white one is a boy and the black one a girl, not sure really.
