    These are my 3 week old bantams.... so far I'm thinking I have 3 roos, the silkie will be a mystery for a few more months, and I'm hoping 2 pullets, although I know it might be a few more weeks to be positive........ what do you think?

    Quote:Thanks!! I wanted a way to keep them straight, without leg bands, so they get photos done every week with the name tags. It really helps me, altho this time I switched Almond Joy for Reeses on accident. I don't think they'll mind LOL!!!

    Quote:Now I need to figure out what to do with the roos. Hubby won't let me keep any [​IMG] I have a 1 year old silkie I still am not sure about. "she" has never laid an egg, and I've never heard "her" crow, so I'm leaning toward a slacking hen, but who knows!! [​IMG]

    Guess this means I get another trip to TSC to pick up some more chicks! [​IMG]
