    These are chicks our Broody Cochin hatched 5 weeks ago. As of today I know there are at least 2 cockerels [​IMG] The Cuckoo Marans/EE has had his comb for aboout two weeks.
    Today I'm standing there looking at them sitting on the crate that is in the coop and I hear the funniest little crow. I thought it was the CM/EE but nope it was another one [​IMG] Saddly it seems my favorite ones always seem to turn out to be roosters [​IMG]
    Any ways here are some pics
    Both cockerels

    The others, hoping they turn out to be pullets

    This is a older 12 week old EE I was so hoping they all would be pullets since we ordered that way but I knew the odds would be a couple would be cockerels but did it have to be the prettiest one?!

    OK so do like all the prettiest Easter Eggers turn out to be roosters?
    Have a great day

    My 25 yr. old son is the luckiest person in the world. I've decided its because he always expects things to turn out like he wants. I think we really do get what we think about the most....interesting, isn't it....

    Next time order pullets online, or, pick from the 80% pullet bin with your 100% pullet thinking!

    I think cockerals have more personality when they are young. That's why they always turn out to be our favorites.[​IMG]
