    Cloverleaf, now you know I can't have BBS birds, but gosh I love seeing photos of Poseidon in his new home, and I can't get over how fluffy cheeked those babies are! [​IMG]

    I was looking through some old photos of mine I had of him, and thought to myself about the fact that since he was a chick, I was really looking foreward to using and showing him a lot. [​IMG] But I'm so glad to hear you love him! I just hope my Buffs give me plenty of good birds and good luck. So far I've got ONE chick out of several dozen eggs I tried. Half hatched, most were either sold or eaten by a now deceased cat. But, I'm not giving up just yet! [​IMG]

    Are "Stubs" common? and how extreme can they be before you have to wonder about parentage? any one have pics? a couple of my chicks have stubs and am trying to ID to make sure they are not mixes.
