    I have 7 chicks growing from some Blue Rock eggs that I purchased and had shipped, from 12 eggs. I got 4 splash and 3 blues. All are really beautiful, but this particular one has the most beautiful and even colored feathering. I think whether boy or girl, he will stay right here.

    Was it Jim in W. VA? Or maybe it's Va. I forget. [​IMG] Nice guy. I hatched five out of my two doz. from him. Beautiful birds. I got two blues, two splashes and one black.

    Yep, thats the guy! Very nice fella, and Im thrilled with these that I got. Im hoping this little guys is a boy, actually, as Id like to keep him to breed to some barrred rock girls, hoping he will give them the beautiful color and the barred rocks would contribute their egg laying abilities.

    So do the other rock colors lay as well as the barred rocks?
