    I'm interested to see how they develop. And the females bred with a different BCM roo. They should all end up being good layers. The comets start laying at 16-20 weeks.

    And if you don't want them all they would always have a home over here. Like I said bred with a different roo so as to not have inbred babies. They should make some stronger laying dark egged babies.

    X2 on the Red Light. I noticed an obvious difference in their behavior.

    Wingstone: I agree that it depends on your broody Momma and the overall temperment of your other chooks. I've noticed with mine that their rank in pecking order plays a big part in it. Also, how many chicks she has to watch over, probably with just the one to defend and chase after, she may do ok. I move my broodys out now, moslty because we have the broody hutches to put them in and I've found more than one newly hatched chicks dead in the main coop. It is heartbreaking.

    PentaMom, there was a BYCer from Maine that hatched out chicks during the NYD Hatchalong last year. She said she put them outside at 6 weeks no matter the weather. I was very surprised and asked her about it, she has a whole regimen that she follows and sent me a PM describing it, I'll have to look to see if I still have it, and then if I can copy and paste it. My computer skills are seriously lacking, I blame it on age.
