    I've been wanting this breed forever & I finally got some hatching eggs, then...viola! Here they are!

    Anyways, from what I've read they are an auto sexing breed. However, it seems there's a lil variances in the genetics making it not as simple as I thought. So hopefully someone with experience can help me out!

    If the darker ones are hens & light ones Roos, did I really get lucky enough to get 1 roo & 6 hens?? (6th isn't shown but looks like the majority)

    Thats awesome!!! congratulations! I love the breed, but don't know much about sexing them. If you did get 1 boy and mostly girls, that would be really cool :)
