    got some shipped eggs and had 8 hatch... 4 silver laced, 3 black/lavender (all blacks), and 1 calico/mille. the silver laced, I can tell, i've got 3. 3 blacks, and a mottled/calico/whatever. what is this little guy? (thinking roo for comb development at just about 2 weeks old.)

    the curious (to me) thing is the white shoulders... none of the other colors i've ever had were like that (that i remember)... both sides are the same. pure white on the shoulders.

    any suggestions?

    I'm also guessing roo. Perhaps a golden laced?

    That white on his shoulders is the one thing that contradicts with him being a GL. Maybe he's the Mille Fleur?

    GL, not sure about the gender though.

    well i got a message back from the breeder, she thinks it's a calico/mille. which means i got 2! YAY! the other calico tho seems to have way more white than this one, and I think it's a hen. so i've got a pair!

    i'm fairly sure this one's a roo, he's got the largest comb of all his hatchmates. and wattles are developing too.
    not positive but i'm pretty sure i've got 3 roos and 5 hens in the hatch. [​IMG]
