    They look good, Jared. I like the cute little mille fleur D'Uccles. Not really sure that black Orp cockerel is really a cockerel, though, but I could be wrong. How old is he/she?

    Quote:He's 11 weeks old now. He's the one in the pics I posted before that several people said may be a cockerel. He looks more "roo-ish" than most of the others.

    Let me know if he turns out to be a pullet, LOL. I'm not sure on some of them till way up to almost 14-15 weeks. Smoky, one of my 22 week old blue Orp pullets, looked really roo-ish for the longest time, very thick legs, slow feathering and all. She is one of Suede's new ladies now.

    Well, I'll keep an eye on them. That one looks more "roo-ish" than the others but time will tell.

    I incubated them but they all candled clear at 21 days. They may have been too long in transit. Thanks for sending them though. Maybe there is an anit-evil silkie spell cast over my bator.
