    Here is Minty, hatched 8/26 out of a lovely mint green egg. Hoping for a hen, but suspecting a roo. I don't have any other chicks of this breed, so nothing for me to compare to. The light is funny in these pictures, so I hope someone will be able to guess what he/she really is.

    Quote:Sigh. That is what I though. I am in the city, so roos really are not an option for me. Hopefully he turns out really pretty and I can find a nice country home for him.
