    I wonder which thread I posted thses pics on earlier? [​IMG] Oh well, here they are again.

    This chick was hatched last week, I thought as a proper recessive white, but I see it has the same pattern. It's hard to see because it's a bright white {silver?} over the greyish white.

    Here's one from the first hatch back in May. It hatched colored between the two extreems of blue and white patterned chicks posted before this.

    I ended up with one wheaten pullet and 4 buff roos from his eggs. I ordered more eggs but I had 0 hatch. Having an awful time this year with humidity and sticky chicks. I don't know if its my house or the weather or both.....[​IMG] How far is he from Greenville? We are switching to the Shriner's hospital there and maybe I can pay him a visit....

    I have some of Marqueseilla (sp?) ( Sue Osio's) BW eggs and some of her amazing marans due in a week. I put 1/2 under a broody in hopes to improve the hatch rate.

    How does it go? 2 bantams = 1 LF chicken? Goody...[​IMG]
    My Ameraucanas are on their 6th week and so far only one has a pink peacomb. I hope this means good news...When should I be able to tell which ones are girls/boys (before they start crowing/laying, of course), Tricia?

    Ah well...Doesn't hurt to try asking even though I figured that they are notoriously hard to sex. But I'm just going to get attached to the boys, like I always do, and then I have to give them away. The one I know for sure is a roo was defending his (I hope) sisters from my bigger chickens. I put them in their own cage inside the big girls' coop, and he was trying to make himself look big and pecking at my Marans pullet, and she's 13 weeks old!
