    Buster, do you have a full body shot of the first one. I'd like to see what he looks like.. What bloodlines?

    The two black and the dark blue are from Julie's eggs. The barred one is my own. [​IMG]

    I have a couple more shots of the first one. Let me dig them out of photobucket.

    I think you got it Buster!! I hope I can figure mine out when they hatch. Ha, last time I got one to live out of about three dozen b/b/s/ eggs and I was positive it was a pullet..thus..Miss Emily...as you can see by my avatar I was wrong........AGAIN. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the opinions. The cockerel was a late bloomer. Until recently I really thought he was a pullet. Then when I went out today and saw him in the son I knew for sure but got pics of all of them anyway just to run it by everyone here.

    Love the "hen" in you avatar Ozark Hen. [​IMG]

    Thanks Julie. All three of them look great. The only down side to this cockerel is that I don't NEED him. They behave pretty well too. Not real flighty or anything. Looks like I'll have these two pullets in addition to the black Orp hen I had to begin with to put in with Geronimo this spring.
