    Some may remember this post:

    Well I received 8 eggs from Texas. I have one chick and one more
    pipping. The other 6 eggs didn't make it but I'm not surprised.
    Shipping from Texas to CT in november is rough. I'd buy eggs again
    from the seller anytime. He has an interesting selection and is a
    good Ebayer.

    I'll get pics up later when the 2nd hatched [​IMG].
    I may have to take the first one out today since he hatched over 24 hours
    ago.

    I hope you have a roo! [​IMG] (With Longcrowers, that's what I'm assuming you'd want...)

    Thanks TCL and PB. The second is still pipping but not out yet.

    The first one has a comb. I know that sounds ridiculous but when I
    post a pic you'll understand.

    I sang Charlie Daniels songs to the eggs so they should both be roos.
    Don't give away my secret ok. [​IMG]

    Number 2 died in the shell. [​IMG]


    Number 1 is in with the silkies and quails from last weeks hatch.
    He's happy.

    wow - what pretty colors! Do they all color out the same or is there a variety of colors in them like seramas?
