    Wow those look great! I never get tired of seeing pics of Blue Boy. I hope to have a roo like him someday. Very nice birds you have there Julie. I am so glad I was able to get some eggs!

    I'm praying you get a blue Roo out of Blue boy this time around. I have a young blue cockerel from him that is about 4 months now. He should be breeding in another 2 months. He is looking good. My DH said no matter what we would never get rid of Blue Boy. He is going to construct him his own pen this fall for when we put him out to pasture so to speak.

    Thanks JOdy. I have a few really nice splash pullets that are large. Looking forward to breeding in the fall. Got a bator full of eggs right now doing a test run.

    I love how you can see the edge of a pool in one of the pics of ranging chickens. It's like- say no to sterile suburban backyards. Raise chickens!
