Very cute chick Dan. Hope you will have more of the same soon. ~Dee~
So, You have already dubbed him a boy? Whatever is fine with me. I am happy to have one. Candled and eggtopsied the last 2 eggs in the 1st group tonight and one was an early quitter and one a late quitter. That is frustrating! If he gets company it will be out of the eggs due to hatch on June 6th or 7th. I am sure I will be trying more of those eggs again in the fall, along with Hupp Farm eggs
Thought you guys might like to see this video my husband took of me cuddling one of our black australorp roos, "Mr. Carson".
Ok. So I watched this video about feather sexing chicks at a day (or 2) old. . Then I wrote to McMurray's Hatchery and asked them what breeds they used feather sexing on. This is the response I got from them.
The following breeds may be feather sexed:
Silver Laced Wyandotte
Single Comb Leghorn
Murray McMurray Hatchery
So, watch the video and see how it is done. They show some great photos that you can learn from! Hope this helps us all!
This is a picture of my dads Black Australops mingling with his red chickens. They are sassy chickens. Unfortunately, he has to get rid of his little herd because he is no longer able to care for them.
I am sorry he can't keep them. Are you going to take them?
Thanks... I'm very excited!!! How many do you have OCAP? Any cons?
What other breeds do you have? What made you go with Australorps? Lol just curious...
At what age should I start to see them develop wattle's? My girls are about 12 weeks old I think...i will try to get a picture to share with you all later today.
Within four weeks there was absolutely no doubt who was a rooster in our batch of chicks.
