    My family and I incubated some of our eggs back in March. The daddy roo was a black sex-link and the mommy hens were RIRs. I think I got a really neat coloring from them and wanted to show them off. They are about 16 - 18 weeks old now.

    That's a bunch of pretty cockerels. Have they started causing trouble yet? Testosterone laden cockerels can be a true pain!

    Quote:They are actually two hens and one cockerel. They are very docile and tame. All of them will perch on my arm and eat out of my hands!

    Thanks for the pics. Our main roo is now our home hatched bsl, so looking forward to lots of different colors next spring! Nice to see what we might be getting.
