    Bec THE Delaware Blue Hen

    [​IMG] OMG I am so excited!!! I am getting a pair of Delaware Blue Hen Chickens!!! I am soooo excited I could just bust inside!!
    I did some research and only half of the chicks will turn out blue. Blue Babies are born blue ..the other half turn out either black or white---Black or yellow chicks!! Well these little ones are blue as blue can be. The one is a rooster I know because he struts around with his chest out and stands really tall!! So there is another that walks that way too..I assume that is a roo too and then there in one that just walks normal and moseys around--Hen I am guessing.
    I will get them next Tuesday along with a White Crested Polish and an Americauna!!

    I was so surprised when I saw these 3 little blue babies!!! There is only a 50% change of Blue's producing Blues, so I am lucky to have found them!!
    If we have babies in the future....I can share!!!
