  2. Ooooohhhh!!!!! Our babies are related!!! I have a dozen of Julie's RIRs in my incubator right now, they went in on Thursday at 6am! Mine weren't marked RC or SC so it'll be a toss-up determining who is who. Do they look any different to you? Is there any way to know which is which?

    I'm so excited to see yours, MORE PICS!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    mine were marked rir only. she has a pair in there that r rosecomb so i knew there was a chance and i was sure hopeing!!! but she hadn't been hatching out the rose ones. 6 out of 6 eggs were all fertile!!!! actually rosecomb is very rare and i about died when i saw it, gosh is it adorable!!

    yes the single comb the comb looks like a row of little spikes like a normal looking comb and the rosecomb is flat and wider with little teeny just barly noticeable bumps.

    i have 6 more rir and orps hatching now i'm so excited!!! i will definately take more pics! see if i can get a good shot of the comb difference. u should know soon as hatched if there is any.
    will keep ya updated!!

    I love those pretty chicks. I am so glad you hatched rosecomb. I had very sad news this morning. When my husband went to the pen I had moved my RC and hen to He was dead a doornail. Made me sick. He has been as healthy as a horse. No signs of disease, I know he wasn'st wormy. His feathers were so shiny and brillant looking and his legs awesome. He must have had a heart attack or something. He was fine yesterday and crowing up a storm, trying to fight with the roos next to him. The good news is one of my good friends has his offspring and he is almost five months old as I hatched him in Oct. and she doesn't want to keep the Cockerals. I am going to get him I think unless I decide not to keep RIR's and just concentrate on Orps and silkies. Hard decision. His name was Kyle and he was a fine Roo.
  8. That's AWESOME, CONGRATS!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
