    I have 13 BBS Orp eggs in my bator from TuffOldHen. I moved them to the hatcher last night and found my first pip around 11:30 this morning. I am so excited, I can't wait to see these little darlings!!

    I have 2 chicks hatched, one is blue and the other is either dark blue or black. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is black. 2 more are almost zipped and there are 3 more with pips.

    I had 10 out of 12 hatch from Tuffoldhen. I ended up with (I think) 3 splash, 3 blue and 4 black. I'm afraid all of the blues might be boys!

    I think I can tell the roos just by the feathering and the tail size--is that really possible with the orps??
