    I want one!!! Soo cute, Justusnak. I'm so relieved they've started hatching for you. Only now you'll be at the bator making baby talk instead of begging and pleading... Yup. Lost your mind, for sure! Can't wait to see the fuzzy butts all dry and fluffy!

    Im not really sure what they are mixed with....last year, I bought 15 peeps...the goy said they were RIR..well....ONE IS WHITE! And I mean white as snow. Her name is pancake.
    Here is the flock these eggs came from
