    Wow, Its so amazing to watch how fast these feathered kids grow! It seems like yesterday they hatched... now they are about 8 weeks old!

    Soon I am going to have to choose to keep just one Roo, but That just Seems IMPOSSIBLE!

    Cyn, all your BR babies are such gentlemen and sweet as can be, and the Delaware Roos are such cuddle Bugs.

    I have no clue which Roo to pick! I want to keep one of each, but I only ended up with 2 BR, and 2 Delaware pullets.. 2 Roos is definitely 2 Too many.. [​IMG]

    Well, here are a few pics I just snapped when I went outside at 10 p.m. to check on them before signing on here and going to bed for the night...

    Looking at me wondering why I was outside with a flashing lights at them.. LOL

    My WelsummerXBlue Ameraucana Mix (that needs a home) was not pleased about me waking him up.. LOL

    My 6 Barred Rocks (Cyn's grand-babies!) 2 Girls and 4 Boys

    Funny Pic

    Cute Delaware Couple



    I like this pic

    The roo with the darker tail is not as cuddly as the others, but I like his color. The other is a Sweetheart!

    This is the Sweetheart I might end up keeping, depends if I can really let a Barred rock boy go!

    Wow, you did end up roo-heavy, didn't you? Sorry about that-usually is a bit more even on the numbers of girls/boys! If you want a BR rooster, pic the one with the best, most crisp barring. Front Porch Indiana has a rooster named Bob from mine that is an example of really good barring. Check out her pics on here within the last week.
