    Ok, so, I got two pullets from Orschelyn's (sp?) They are around 7 weeks old. Is it just me or did I get one roo? Or can they develop at different rates? Thank You!

    Thank you for your replies. Oh my goodness, I have way too many roosters....[​IMG] Well since I have a pair, should I plan on hatching some more babies? What kind of temperment do these beauties have? I have read they are docile. Is that correct?
