    It looks like we are settled on 5 new chicks from this round of staggered hatch. 12 more in the incubator.

    Ravyn, I think the self blue wyandotte chicks are turning out all black like I assumed. Even with a SLW father.

    Interesting how much lighter these SQ SLW are from my last couple batches. I have a theory that a thin laced SLW will be lighter as a chick.

    I think the blacks may have a strait comb from their orpington ancestors. :( These are split for self blue. I hope to get some with rose combs.

    Why? This thread has about a 50/50 mix of boys and girls. Y'all know we are mean, we know y'all are crazy. What's to debate? [​IMG]
    I have a brother, see, and some men make better women....
    Let me put it this way... see, some people like hot dogs, and some people like doughnuts...
    No, that's not...

    It was hard to read this morning.
    Funny, that's the same face my brother made when I showed him the shakedown [​IMG]

    And I get all of this just because I wanted to be polite!
    Good for you!
    I think that the Turkey image was a good Idea...

    Still nothing!? I have two EE's that are 9 months old and they either are not laying or they are laying brown eggs. [​IMG]

    That little one facing the camera reminds me of a cigar comment that was made about my little male cochin... [​IMG]

    But they are gorgeous! [​IMG] Did you lose any in this batch?

    I missed the cigar comment. [​IMG]

    Thank you WV, we had 6 no hatch eggs. I will throw them out tonight without looking.

    I can't remember exactly, maybe SC can, but when I posted a pic of mine at a day old, he asked if that one woke me up crowing, wanting a cigar! And I'll be darned if he didn't turn out to be right. Just an early manly looking chick. Of course, I'm not so skilled to be able to tell.
