I gave 24 of my eggs to a friend of mine who is a 1st and 2nd grade teacher. She is doing a unit on chickens/eggs and since she has a "chicken friend" she decided to hatch eggs for her classroom to observe. When my friend candled the eggs and had 18 that looked good, I replied, "Yea! I can't wait to see my grandchickies!". Well that statement took and now she is calling them my grandchickies too!


So, right now 1 of them is out with 18 more to go! I am so excited! There is a possibility that 1 or 2 of them could be pure Partridge Rocks, but the rest will be mixed. My roo was a partridge rock and my other hens include: BO, SLW, RIR, and EE. I can't wait to see what they look like (I know, I know, they should look like chicks!), but you know what I mean.


BTW our PR roo had to be culled due to ongoing leg issues about 1 1/2 weeks ago, so this is bittersweet.....

Quote:It was very sad! We had three roosters to start with and kept this one. But he just couldn't recover from his leg issues. It looks like the 1st one out might be a partridge rock (both hen and roo). That would be very exciting!!!!

Still hoping for a good hatch!!!
