    "She" Crowed!

    So I built a beautiful coop and put together our first backyard flock. Where I live we are allowed 4 hens/no roosters.
    So here are the "4" :[​IMG]
    1.Silver Laced Wyandotte - Sassy
    2.Gold Laced Wyandotte - Pumpkin
    3. Easter Egger - Cleo
    4.Light Brahama - Petunia
    5. Sultan - Lola

    So now that Lola is actually "Rico" and we love "him" we're fine with it, the neighbors are fine with it but what can we expect in the way of offspring if Rico is allowed to impregnate the other girls?

    If you collect eggs every day, there be no chicks. The eggs would have to incubate for about 21 days at a certain temp before you have a chick.

    Thanks! Already knew how that part works [​IMG] but "IF" we were to let some hatch someday...what would be the result?
