    So, for the months I have been on the forum and been asking about breeds and gender, sweet Chocolate had been sexed an easter egger pullet...she sure is looking a little differently now! Is she still my sweet baby girl? She is now 18 weeks plus or minus...and her tail feathers are turning green...she is so pretty...or is he?

    Quote:Yes as long as you remove the eggs and put them in a fridge before the mom gets broody and they will remain undeveloped. But check to see where you live. Some places dont allow roos because of noise [​IMG]
