    I had 8 speckled sussex eggs in the incubator and 6 have hatched.
    The first piped.

    I've moved them all to the brooder for recovery time.
    More pictures to come, I'm sure.

    Do you think that it's a rooster?

    I didn't notice that either but who ever said that must be on to something, maybe he is a roo!

    I am extremely jealous and you can send any leftover straight to me! Where do you live, I am quite close to the airport myself! [​IMG]

    I really hadn't thought about what to do with the extras. [​IMG]

    I have a rooster & 2 hens. These are their eggs.
    The roo is my avatar. He's a bit older now. A whole year old.
