    This is a picture of my first cockerel, a welsummer named Spider. He was from the second batch of hatching eggs I set; I didn't get any of the first batch to hatch and only Spider hatched from the second. The other picture is of my daughter holding a welsummer pullet, from my third try at hatching (I gor 6 cockerels and 5 pullets). Woot!

    That rooster is beautiful. I hope he stays nice. Same for your daughter. I'm sure she'll stay beautiful but the teenage years could test goal number two!
