    Quote:I'm not sure. My Auburns are showing their colors(pardon the pun) pretty early on. I bet on the aggressive ones turning out roo. [​IMG] My first hatch of the season left me with 5 hens out of 13... I hope these other two batches give me more, hens that is.

    I want some help here. I need to pick a #1 and a #2 boy.
    #1 will live with me and be used with my two girl to make my Trio.
    #2 is going to live with a friend and I can barrow him if need be.
    #3 will be found a good home where he can do rooster things.
    I have numbered them 1,2,3 for identification purposes in the pics
    Any input would be helpful thank-you in advance.
    All boys are 8 weeks old
    First up #1. He is the biggest. He is the boss roo, but is not mean. He loves to sit in my lap and get pets.He has big eyes, but not sure if it is a turtle eye. He has a few white tips.Bottoms of feet are solid yellow.

    Next is number #2 he is also big a close second in size. He like to pick fights a little bit. He is nice to me, another lap chicken. He is darker colored overall,legs beak. Yellow on bottom of feet. His feathers have a bit of a purple sheen mixed in with the green. I thought his looks a little wierd.

    And bringing up the rear we have #3. He is a bit smaller, but not by much. He has good size bone, just hasn't put the weight on like the others. A little more stand offish. He nipped me a few times, but we corrected that. No white tip that I see. Yellow on bottom of feet. Wierd comb.

    Afternoon Everyone... In regards to greyhenfarm's cockerals, it sounded to me like everything is already figured out? I don't want to disagree with what they have already decided. Their agenda makes all the difference in the world. Breeding for certain results, or culling for certain reasons...etc

    I recieved this e-mail from garfield farms today. While, I knew about the show. I was unable to make it and should have posted earlier about it. Sorry for that.

    I was at the Garfield rare breed show that bigzio posted about. They had lots of started auburn, blacks and white chicks for $3.00 each. They even gave some away to someone and still had quite a few left at the end of the show.
