    Your birds are beautiful!! Theirr babies will be so cute!!

    My EE roo looks a little bit like your EE hen!!! He's not quite as speckled as your hen is. He is getting a bit fancier as he's getting older. There is a bit more white in his hackle feathers now. This photo was from 2 months ago. That's why I want to see what his babies look like!!

    I found a picture from 2 weeks ago. He's getting some yellow in his hackle feathers, and his tail is a beautiful shiny black/green. This picture doesn't really show how pretty the colors are.

    He does, Jessimom! I really hope I get some more like her, but I'm clueless on the genetics, so we'll see!

    It's okay, I didn't want to go haha they offered but eh. My aunt and uncle are gonna be there and ya. They did this time share thing a little while ago where they put you up at a hotel like 3 days and you have to go to this 1 1/2 hour presentation one day so they are using it up. They have hotels all over but since my aunt & uncle are gonna be in Florida they settled on this one. It's gonna be kind of boring lol my aunt and uncle are driving, they are from Pennsylvania and were in North Carolina yesterday. My parents are flying down Sunday morning. It's only for 3 days and fortunately I just got my license 2-3 weeks ago and my brother will be home so all good :)

    Ok... Today I did a solid candle on everything in my incubator. Day 13 survivors are as follows::: 8 duck eggs :::: 8 EE eggs ::::: 31 bantam eggs.

    My day 10 eggs are as follows :::: 4 black Australorp eggs :::;; 2 black Australorp/ white leghorn eggs.

    So far not bad considering 1 of the duck eggs was over 3 weeks old at time of setting. It's black so cool and the day 10 eggs haven't had a rooster for 2 weeks and I just added him back.
