    My broody WLH hatched 7 chicks 8 weeks ago. No crowing yet but I'm feel pretty sure that I got 2 Cockerals and 5 pullets (could have been MUCH worse)...any one agree with me?

    I couldn't get them all for separate pics but 2 look like this:

    and 5 look similar to this:

    Here's some of them mix and match

    Quote:LOL I was blessed with this little Mama and theses babies. I never thought in a million years that a white leghorn would go broody(at 6 months old), plus she sat on 7 eggs that had been in the fridge all day and hatched every one:) Last night she stopped roosting with them and this morning laid an egg for the first time after weeks and weeks of brooding and mothering [​IMG]

    That's pretty cool! I wish one of my girls would go broody sometime. [​IMG] And it looks like your guesses of 2 cockerels and 5 pullets is right.
