    about three to four weeks for the game rooster's egg
    they should hatch fine.
    they would be rose combed chicks

    Let it happen!

    Could you photograph chicks at hatch. I am looking to improve color sexing at hatch. Some of my doms you can not color sex and others only 90% accurate.

    From that cross --
    Males (chicks) will be barred and hens (chicks) will be black all should be rose combed.

    Quote:No. That is why my interest is peaked. The barring effect given by Chris may not be evident with chicks still covered by down.
