    Ok I finally got NEW pics of the roo I hatched out literally. He was in his shell for four days after his estimated hatch time and he was a fighter! I had to hatch him out totally because I lost humidity and the membrane dried out totally. Here he is today just as healthy as can be [​IMG] My son just LOVES the chickens as you can tell. He can't seem to NOT pet them.

    ETA they are both 14 weeks old [​IMG]

    Once your cockeral starts feathering out with his mature feathers you won't recognize him. Nice pair. [​IMG]

    I'm thrilled with his comb...it's just perfect. And he's already gotten darker so I can't wait to see him when he's older [​IMG] Every day it seems he changes. We have been pulling him out of the coop and playing with him in the house LOL (not on the carpet obviously lol) I want to be sure he's good with Nic (my 4 yr old) and is used to us. I don't ever want to have to get rid of him so I'm hoping he stays nice and shy like he is now. We just love him and Lexi. [​IMG] If anything happened to either of them I know my son would just be devastated. They are HIS birds as he says. He got to help hatch the blue roo out and he will always remember that I think. He talks about it all the time.
