    I was expecting SOME normal chicks but they're ALL B.S. She MUST be split to B.S. since father is B.S. All chicks are B.S.

    Hope you like my pics.

    BTW this is my hand-raised pea-hen Cricket and her first ever chicks, they should be super-tame!

    Okay you have me soooo jealous for several reasons...Your peahen is really tame (so I am sure the peachicks will be too), all the peachicks are blackshoudler (to me one of the best varieties to watch grow up), there are FIVE peachicks...5 that is so awesome! Oh and not to forget they are hatched by your peahen and I am guessing will be raised by her?

    That is way cool good luck I hope all the peachicks stay healthy and she can successfully raise them all to adulthood without any problems![​IMG]
