    Here are some pics of the chicks from the last two very small hatches. I think perhaps both the black and the light blue Orpington chicks that are now 2 weeks old could be cockerels, but not sure yet. The black Ameraucana from that hatch is very curious and bossy and clearly the leader of that bunch, LOL.
    This hatch from yesterday produced two black Ameraucanas, thought at first one was blue, but I dont think so now. Also, I got a Barred Rock cockerel and pullet, I think. I'm positive about the cockerel-he's quite a tank and very silvery, no black down the front of his legs, humongous headspot. The one I believe is a pullet has a small headspot and the front of her legs is very dark, plus she's much smaller than the boy, although they came out of the same size egg from Lexie.
    Blue Orpington..cockerel?

    How's Suede taking the news? The little blue boy could be a concern...!

    Well, that little blue one, if it is a boy, will have to live elsewhere, I'm afraid. The only boy I'll keep is Hawkeye's son because, frankly, I need him if I want to be sure I get fertile eggs from my laying flock. Surely someone will want a Son of Suede, LOL. He is very pretty, though.
    Kate, I have no idea why I'm rooster-heavy here. I still have more in that bator and I have someone who wants a pullet of each breed I raise. If I can't hatch any for me, heck, how will I hatch any for her, LOL?
