    I couldn't say, all my breeds are separate. I know he wants a piece of the big cuckoo Marans beside him...
    Edit: the problem with keeping them with other birds would be the crests. The hen's eyes are totally covered, and they can only see directly below them, so they can't defend themselves and are easily spooked if you don't let them know you are there

    Never did a HAL. Had a hatch on April 1 that started on March 31 and I didn't know whether I should do march or April HAL. But, I have developed another broody. My DH doesn't want any more chicks right now so I'm just letting her have 2 eggs. These are due
    April 30. Don't know what's up with the end off the month thing. Happy hatching everyone.

    Here are (most) of my April HAL chicks! They're in the big brooder now. I still really don't know how many chicks are under my broodies. I'll make a final count when the guy I'm splitting the hatch with comes and picks up his chicks tomorrow.
