    I was lucky with my Smith order and have only 4 blue wheaten roosters and 8 blue wheaten pullets + 1 blue wheaten pullet and 2 wheaten roosters from Pips&Peeps eggs, but unlucky with my Meredith and Pips&Peeps buff eggs I hatched with 9 roosters and only 5 pullets, and one of them has a clean face and another partridge markings, which leaves me with only 3 usable buff pullets! The buff roosters sure are gorgeous if anyone is interested [​IMG]

    Will breads and muffs grow back?
    If yes about how long will it take?
    I am not in a hurry, I am just wondering.

    If I didn't have chicks filling up every nook and cranny I would jump at a chance to get more buff eggs from you [​IMG] The buff rooster chick from your eggs is my favorite of all the boys! He is a keeper [​IMG]

    Its nice to see some girls in somebody's picture! [​IMG] I swear somebody is coming to my house at night and leaving little wheatie roos everywhere.


    Haha! I know! I hatched over 20 males and only 8 females! [​IMG] Can't wait 'till my girls start laying and I can hatch some of my own eggs!



    Oh and another question, SINCE I have over 20 cockerels, between 6 and 14 weeks old, do you guys think I should cull the few with OBVIOUS defects now or wait?


    Thanks!
