    All blrw and I too, just want a couple of hens, light and dark blue if the gender/color gods are listening!

    My dd and I "chicken flipped" and came up with 7 girls and 5 boys![​IMG]

    Sending successful hatching vibes your way! [​IMG]

    We're just starting to wrap up our hatch (day 21 ends today at 5pm) with 9 of 15 bbs orps out so far. Think the temp might have been a bit low, but we'll see!

    Hang in there!!
