    You have a beautiful pair. And how blessed are you to get that beautiful pair from hatched eggs, from different breeders. Awesome eye candy!!

    Hope you have great success breeding them. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thank you for all your compliments. I can't believe how lucky I am, after attempting to hatch many many shipped eggs, I got these 2. I have 4 other little ones and hope I have pullets but am thinking one is a Roo:(. I will have to decide later what to do with him as I don't want to many Roos.
