    One of my little hens, Veronica, is IN LOVE with my husband( I call her "the other woman"). The minute she hears his voice, she comes running as hard as she can to get to "her man". [​IMG]

    The hens are fine but my roosters are a bit peckish (my hand if they get close enough--which I don't let happen often). I notice that two of the chicks jump at my hand too when I put the water in (roos? Could be).

    Well, you were absolutely right-all pinkish legs.
    Anyway, here are pictures of the 4 babies I have right now.

    These are the two promising ones:

    These two are not promising:

    Definitely a little roo in this last one.

    I definitely want to hatch a bunch more but one of the mothers hatched these herself so she is not laying. The other mother that I started with was killed by a snake but her two, now grown babies (both hens) are in with the roos now but one of them is the crest-less one. I do have to say though, of the babies so far the crest-less one has the best mille fleur pattern. The roos seem to hate her though.

    Does anyone know of anyone selling eggs or chicks? I know there was one hatchery once that had some but I can't remember which one.
