    The one thats out is a cutey but its already trying to kill itself lol, I have a dual hatch going on and the little knucklehead somehow got its head pinned under a rack of eggs so I had to open the incubator and take the rack off its neck lol

    Gotta love them mutts. lol..

    It really is neat looking.

    I have a cage of just Jumbo brown, hatched a few of their eggs and came up with a Roux Dilute. lol...
    I got them as chicks so I don't know any background on them , so needless to say the little light colored one was a surprise. lol...

    Just peeked in and now there is a white baby hatched, he's peeping like crazy so maybe he will drive the other lazy butts outta their shells lol
