    Did not think any would go broody and actually set! She kept disapearing for days.. finally found her nest, with 13 eggs in it..[​IMG]
    Relocated her and them to a dog kennel in the garage with food and water... will have to see what happens...[​IMG]

    And picked up 4 new chicks, aged about 6 weeks old... mom(s) un known breed, could be one or more of the following breeds, EE, red sex link, blue(black?) sex link, or gold laced wyandotte. Rooster was a blue wheaten americanna...Hoping the blue feathered one is a rooster, to let be with my EE hens, but if not will keep it, hoping the lightest in coloring is a hen. The jury is out on the other two..[​IMG] I am pretty sure the darkest is a cockerel, and if so he will be outta here, one way or another:cd the last... well no clue there either, lol...
    the one I hope is a pullet...
    One I think is a rooster..

    And, lastly, the one I have no idea on:idunno

    They bring my flock to 27 birds, [​IMG]

    Pretty birds and one determined broody... Can't wait to see how many chicks she hatches out.

    Quote:Oh no, lol, I drove an hr and half away to get these, and that one was the one I truly wanted the most! Actually, I wanted the adult rooster she had sold, had seen the ad for him and drooled like crazy, lol:plbb

    looks like the little blue one is a roo, and the dark brown one possibly.
    the lighter brown ones are pullets.!
