    Could be that you got all girls, Gloria Jean, except for Jake, of course. Maxine is the only one who may be a late blooming cockerel, but I really do not think so. Meg's baby is beautiful!!

    Thats what I think that the only boy is Jake. In the Pictures they are on their first day out. Jake saw a cat for the first time. He was so alert. All the girls came running when i called them to the coop but not Jake. I make a point of picking him up everyday but he is not affectionate. The barred rock girls Emma and Callie are the sweetest yet. Velvet is a bit spunky and Maxine is sort of shy. hope you like the pics. Jean

    PS I think that megs baby is going to be one gorgeous hen too. Her head is black her back blue and the wing feathers have an edging of red along with the breast.

    Sounds pretty normal for those breeds. The BR boys aren't necessarily affectionate at that age, but they are almost always friendly. I'm happy you got so many girls! Wish you were close enough to get the little Orps that are with my Dusty.
