    Yes, genetics are amazing. I want to learn how to do it myself now. I love this color and am anxious to see her when full grown. The rest are b.b.s and one buff. I don't think I got a roo from your hatch at all. I did seem to get one roo from uglyduck's 8 eggs but they are all buffs. Half of them run to me when I put my hand down into the brooder. They are about nine days older than your hatch.

    How pretty! You know my big RIR/Buff Orp girl, Meg, is really named Nutmeg, too. Love the name-it suits her.
