    [​IMG] So Turbo sent me some very nice BLRW eggs roughly 25 days ago. [​IMG] Unfortunately, only 9 of them have hatched out so far. There was one other pip this morning, so my fingers are crossed. [​IMG]

    At the time of the photoshoot, one was still in the incubator getting fluffed up and regaining its strength! (Hercules, Hercules! [​IMG])

    At this point, individual pictures were taking wayyy to long. So we went with group shots! [​IMG]

    And one picture I thought was cute. [​IMG] Looks like she's trying to keep her sister (egg) company!

    I am happily waiting to see if a few more will pop out! I'm also waiting on another 12 BLRW eggs from Turbo. Here's hoping for all pullets but one! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ETA: Anyone have any ideas regarding the variance in coloration?

    I hatched some of their eggs last summer and I have very nice pullets out of them.

    Thanks guys! I really do think that these will turn out very nice. I received the other dozen eggs from them (actually packed about 14), and cannot wait to put them in the incubator!

    I have a problem.. I am a hatch-a-holic! [​IMG]

    I've said it before and I say it again....the only thing cuter than a chick is more chicks. Love the first pic. Aren't you having fun today? They are adorable.

    I just found this thread.....yeah our little chickies!!!!

    the picture #5 & #6 look like they are going to have some deep dark red. That is a good thing. I see some splash in there also. Nice looking chicks.

    How are the other eggs doing?
