    Thanks for the pics BamaChicken! I can't wait for this guy to get older and bigger- I really don't have to though because he looks bigger every time I look at him. [​IMG]

    I can't wait to try to hatch some eggs from your birds later this year. I love the lacing on those blues. This cockerel and the splash one will definitely need some girlfriends.

    Oh, I forgot Blue Boy who was strolling in the yard today taking care of things. His wattles are to large and wrong eye color but we just love him. He makes pretty babies. If you notice the wattles and Comb on BAMA they are very good except beat up looking from sparing through the fence and he accidentally got out a few days back and him and Blue Boy tangled.

    I love the look of Bue Boy too. I can't wait to have some! Bama is really nice too. I think I'm green with envy.

    Ms. Julie,
    I have the 4 monsters that I hatched from you black pen 2 weeks ago. Do you have a pic of the parents that you could post? These chicks are huge at 2 weeks and I can't fill them up. They eat 24/7 non-stop. I am so proud of them too. They are some really fine chicks.

    Roger, of course blue Boy is the granddad but here are a few of the black hens and the black Cock. I sold the Cock last week as I have some new larger black ones coming off. Hew was beautiful and very typey
