    I'm sorry for coming to you again with the same ee's. I just can't tell with these little buggars. I can tell the standard breeds, but these ones just have me confused. I have an idea of which one is a rooster. And now that I KNOW I have a rooster (fertile egg), I'm desperate to figure out which one. [​IMG] They were 20w on Monday. And no, no one has crowed yet. [​IMG] Some of the pics are blurry. I couldn't get them to stay still. They were fighting over scratch, LOL, but if I need to get better pics, I can.

    Every single bird in your photos are females. No males at all. (That includes the other breeds as well.)

    I agree, all hens.


    ETA: Could you post a pic of one of your eggs (cracked open of course), maybe you think you are seeing a fertile one but it really isn't. NM, I see you already did. I don't know enough about fertile eggs to give an opinion on that one.

    Well *insert bad word here* I'm going to cry. Is there a possibility that this is NOT a true bullseye, aka fertile egg, then. I haven't heard ANY crowing with the exception of one I already rehomed, a couple months ago.
