    These guys are from the batch you sent me, 7 hatched, 6 made it. Overall i have my Blue breasted pair, 3 three above then im pretty sure 3 more hens.
    So you think first one is hen? second male? third hen?

    You hatched a lot of hens there!

    I love the fly on the back...beautiful specimen of a blue breasted male though!

    Quote:Thank you. Natural oddity i guess hatching so many hens. The 6 are housed together and from what i can tell based on the theme that "grass don't grow on a well used path" the one male is servicing the 5 hens.
