    When Bonnie started laying I was very curious about Mosby's fertility. Some of these big boy orps take a little longer to show proof of the deed they have been doing with their girls so ... I popped 3 of Bonnie's eggs in my bator.

    Today I moved all 3 in to my hatcher. They are all trying to pip the inner air cell. [​IMG]

    How old is Mosby, MP? Just wondering how long I will have to wait for signs of fertility in Diesel, my black orp roo.

    TOH I am having agonizing waiting pains for those 2 splashes from your eggs to get to mating and egg laying age! The splash boy is big. That buff blue X is bigger! I am waiting to cross him with some blacks and buffs. I am in agony to see what those will look like since he is so deep brassy red. For now I put him in my main laying house. I am running out of places for cockerals to prove themselves!
