    THe other reason why i think that the EE rooster is the father of that chick is because it is yellow.. my other rooster is a Barred Rock so i assume all chicks would come out either black or barred??

    Also, since the peeping started this morning, I now have 4 hens that decide they want to go broody ..I may have set a bad example here they are trying to set up a mommy's Club on me. One of the other black ones ( Jersey Giant Or Astralorp unsure) has been broody for about a week now. I cant stop her so i am going to give her some eggs Sunday... I hope i find some at the show. Please be hatching egs at the show [​IMG] The Others i am going to have to try and discourage from broodiness. cant have all my nesting boxes full of broodies.. Eggs have to be laid somewhere because I like Breakfast..

    Jeez this is bad.. Before i know it I am going to have 200 acres of chicken coops.

    Does the door fit your biggest chickens OK? I was told to make 14" x 18" nesting boxes for the BOs I'm getting. Will these fluffy butts fit through the door?

    Kabhyper - I feel as if I have lost a chick of my own after following right along with you and mama hen through pre-natal jitters, birth questions and post-partum worries. So sorry for your little white silky and so glad the two blue ones are doing well.

    Racinchickins - I'm sorry for your dark brahma. What a sad way to go.

    Julie0477 - Too bad about your stubborn little ducks. Theirs should be a cautionary tale repeated to other naughty poultry.

    I have the Ador1 chicken door. It is pretty fantastic! I don't have any BOs so I am not sure how large they are, but I have some pretty large Barred Rocks and they fit through just fine. I love that it runs off a lantern battery so I don't have to worry about power outages. I also like that the light sensor is based off of a 5 minute average light level, that means if headlights or flashlight beams hit the sensor for a second the door won't fly open. I haven't had any issues with chickens getting locked out and I left it on the factory settings. I haven't used the 'last call' feature, I haven't needed to. It is pretty dark by the time it closes and my ladies have always been "in bed" at least 30 minutes prior to the door shutting. I did have to wait 2.5 weeks before I got it, that was a bit annoying since I sure got charged for it right away (isn't that how it always works). It was also really easy to install. Two thumbs up for the Ador1! [​IMG]
