    I hatched out 5 little fuzzies 2 1/2 weeks ago... and their progress is extraordinary! So many feathers... And this little boy tried to CROW! We could see signs of him being a him, but he actually tried to crow! The other 4 look like hens. though. These are AmberLink crosses. Also, the little guy would charge up at the door of the mini cage. Here he is!

    One of my Silver Sex Link EE roos crowed yesterday! Couldn't believe it, he isn't old enough to yet! [​IMG]
    Now what is REALLY FUNNY is when a 1 day old chick that isn't even dry yet crows .... that's a litte disturbing! [​IMG]

    At only two weeks old my lil roos in the bunch are already squaring off and challenging one another. One has been very protective of the others and twice now has tried to spur me when there was a squeeking chick in my hand, lol
