    Rather than hijack the other threads on BBS I thought I'd post some pictures of some of mine here. These in the pictures are 13 and almost 16 weeks old. The very last picture is some of the orps and blue rocks that have hatched in the last couple of days.

    Oh I like them! I have a soft spot for BBS orps. I will have to find my camera and get some pics of mine now.

    Hey I don't think I ever let you know my final count on my SS from you.....I ended up with three. The other two never internally pipped. One of them is in the very corner of the chick picture.

    Those are so pretty!! I only have some Buff Orpingtons, but I sure do admire those Blues. Maybe someday....I could hatch some of those, too!! [​IMG]

    Quote:Cool! I ended up with ONE, so you actually did better than me! I was looking at that chick and wondering if it might be a speckled sussex. I am glad that you were able to get some. I would love to see pics as they get their feathers in.

    I'll be sure and keep you posted on them.

    Gorgeous! I just love the lacing on them. Mine are still in the teenage stage, but I can already see some beautiful lacing on a couple of them.

    Thanks Cyn.....I think some of them look pretty good...not that I know that much!! I've got some younger ones too (including the one from your egg) that I didn't take pictures of this morning.

    Better get back to the field...we started wheat harvest yesterday and I just came in to make some sandwiches to take out.
