    Notice Big Bear (split lav/black orp cockerel) and his pullets in the background of Lucas' pics - one of those girls laid their first egg today (on the right in comparison to a buff orp egg below).. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] WOOHOO!!! Lav eggs are starting!!! Congrats!

    Sonny is getting soooo big! His crow is wonderfully deep sounding, and he's getting nice hackles and saddle feathers. Very deep, beetle green sheen.....what a beauty he is. I hope he is as gorgeous and big as Big Bear...[​IMG]

    I'm so glad you posted these! What purty babies! Would you mind looking at these from your eggs and tell me what you think?
    They are now almost 6 weeks old and I love them!!
    I ended up with 2 dark rumpless, 2 white rumpless, 2 white with tails and 1 with a tail and a left tuft--of course named Lefty. I'm afraid that Lefty has crooked toes, though. I tried to straighten them, but with no luck. I don't have a clear pic of Lefty, but I have some of the others.

    Lucy--she (I hope) has a beautiful purple sheen in the sunlight!

    Hi Becky, they look great. The first 2 dark ones look like pullets. I'm not sure on the whites, but in the last pic the one on the left looks like it could be a male and the one on the right a female. I would love to see more pics of the first dark one as it grows more. I don't believe I've ever seen mottling in the chest like that on mine but I don't really focus on blacks much here anymore, but I believe the gene is still present. Please keep me posted on her. Good job with the hatch.
