Wow those are some dark eggs! And very cool on hatching all girls (unless you needed a roo) Is that a copper splash in the background there of the other pic, the one with the rusty shoulders showing through?
Quote:That's a little EE cockerel who had to go to a new home. He was kind of a blue/copper splash. I had been given the OK to have a rooster last Fall, but as soon as he started crowing...drama, drama, drama.
I'm on my second attempt with shipped eggs, all but two of the first batch were scrambled or broken.
Somebody just shoot me... I dropped a GCM egg. And I only had three. I could just scream. The carton it was in had a tear I didn't see and it wobbled out when I tilted it and I didn't catch it and ... what a horrid sound. My heart broke with it.
All I wanted was a few GCMs and now I'm down to three. These were special, they were a consolation I gave myself after having to sell off most of my birds to help make a payment for a 1400$ root canal.
I couldn't afford them again in forever and now I killed one.
Thank you! He's just started to get real interested in the girls (who take off running for their lives)! Lol He still needs to perfect his crow too, as it's still a little high pitched. He's so sweet, not like roosters we've had in the past. Thanks for commenting
