Photos of our new arrivals. They sure are fun!
beautiful birds! Mine are really fun too!
Are they Blue Slates? Very pretty!
I want some too! I have a pair of BR's. A trio of BS"S that I don't care for. They are aggressive towards my flock of chickens and ducks. I want to get some BS and RP turkeys next spring.

Yes they are blue slates, a pair I also have 1 royal palm. They have been at my house now for 4 days and are quite fun to watch. I have not seen them be aggressive towards anything so far so I am crossing my fingers! I hope to breed them but I am not sure if I will need to break down and get an incubator or if the hen will hatch babies out, I know she did hatch out babies last year. They are both around 1 and half years old. I was a little worried having them free range w/ my chickens I don't want them to get sick but so far so good and I have meds on hand just to be on the safe side! -Cortney
Quote:Your hen will probably hatch them, if she did last year.... just make sure to give her a safe nest that she likes and she'll do fine! what a bunch of little cutie patooties you'll have if you hatch little blues from those two.
