    Well I hope they will be blue. I got blue, black, and lavenders but these two are the only ones that made it.

    Anyone out there want to start guessing whos and roo and whos not!

    This is my favorite picture but my hand got in the way. [​IMG]
    See how the one on the right is short and stalky. The one on the left stands much more upright and its wings are higher up on the bady??? Also take a look at this one on the left its comb is alot me larger that the others.

    They could go either way, black or very slate black (which it would be a black blue color).

    I'm guessing the one on the right would be a roo! I've been wrong before!

    That last picture is a great one for caption contest. "What are the Dixie Chicks thinking?" Even the two other chicks look like their talking about the Dixie Chicks. "Maybe if we stand here really quite, they won't notice us". Too cute.

    All of them really took to each other very quickly. I have heard the larger ones will pick on the little ones , but the girls layed down and the babies curled up to them. I caught one of the little one pecking at Darling's eye! Here are the big girls revisiting there in side brooder. They were so happy being in with the babies the big girls did not even try to jump out of the small plastic container!!!
