    Earlier this year I got an order from McMurray of 25 chicks, and then I also went insane hatching chicks. They are starting to grow up very nicely. Its so interesting having different breeds. They are all out together in the same pen, for now.

    Two blue and splash rocks.

    An EE, hatched from Jody's eggs. Jody, this is the one that is ruling the entire coop. Is it a boy or girl??

    Next is a silver penciled rock, from McMurray, and a dark brahma that I hatched.

    halo, those are great pics and the birds are growing up so nicely. Beautiful!

    That one is a lady. [​IMG] She looks almost like her mom, Cheyenne.

    I love the Silver Pencilled Rocks, too. I have a roo and 2 or 3 hens....cant remember now how many I have. Ill be anxious to get some fertile eggs from them for hatching.
