    Cool! That sounds like there will be some very cute babies. Are you shooting for red sexlinks with the RIRX Delaware mixes? My mixes will be Salmon Faverolle with: Silkie, BCM, BR, EE and Australorp. I hatched those earlier this year and the chicks are very cute and quite hardy so I decided to buy those eggs again. Here is the last generation all clustered in a corner of the brooder

    No, not sex links the daddy is the Deleware, not quite sure what they're gonna look like. Probably will take after the Papa, but we will see, should be good dual purpose birds. Yours look great, I like the buttery colored ones and the ones with the brown tails, our crosses have always been hardy chicks:D

    Well thank you so much. I am trying to get some better pictures of them but they are soooo fast. I was positively surprised that the Salmon Faverolle Mixes turned out quite meaty. I did not expect that. Do you have a picture of your chickens? I would love to see the rooster. Here is mine.

    I'm getting read to set 42 guinea and 19 light Brahmas today. Keep us posted on the progress! This will be my 3rd hatch (the first in my GQF) I can't wait to see the difference. I currently have 20 pearl guineas set in my table top bator due to hatch Aug 6th. (DH's B-day...happy B-day to him) ha,ha.

    Good Luck to you![​IMG]
