    Some folks frown or scream and shout when I post something like the following but I can't help what others think. It's been my long experience that the most hostile cocks are the more virile in a breeding flock.

    7 more Green Egger Naked Necks.
    They kept bunching up.


    I looked but can't remember for sure how many but part of these are single combed. All are yellow legged. Not sure how I'm going to go on leg color for these. The single combs I think are because the moms are only 1/2 Easter Egger so the comb could have went either way in them. I knew this could happen.
    Over all please with them so far. Worth watching grow.

    Well it has been almost 3 weeks since I posted so I believe it is time for a photo update! These are the most jumpy & rowdy chicks I've ever raised!! They do NOT want to be held or approached. They're wild children (other than the legbar growing up with them)![​IMG]Now about 6 weeks old...I'm surprised 3 are still not yet "fully" feathered! Also, I find it interesting the one with the chupmunk back markings started with brown & black wing feathers but they're now turning black & white!? Almost certain that one is a male.

    They are all nice birds but if you lived closer, I'd try to talk you out of birds in pic 2 and 3...regardless of gender.

    Would that be any problem for you?

    It'd be okay with me, but those belong to Missi. She just posted then here. They are the NN/EE cross also. You'd have to ask her.
    I'm going to post individual picture a little later as mine start developing their colors.

    Yes, I'll be looking for homes for the cockerels. I don't think I'll be keeping any of them.
