    If you have watched my other posts you will know I just had a good hatch.
    I don't need this many chickens. If anyone needs some chicks I'd be willing
    to part with 12 for $2 each (cover egg expense).

    These chicks came from a couple in Southbury who have bread a Barred Rock/RIR
    cross which is sexable.

    Look here
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260210284097&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123

    Quote from the breeders:
    "As far as the breeds go the hens laying are 100% barred rock, and 100% RIR.
    The rooster is the product of RIR and Brred RCK Cross paired with a RIR and White
    Rock Cross. The lrgest of this offspring was paired again with a 100% RIR rooster.
    Along the way a recessive gene from an earlier cross came out in the pea comb, and
    an occasional feathering on the feet.
    What I end up with is sexed chicks at hatch. Blck with white dot on head is female, all black is female, red is female, and yellow is male"

    Some may look at this with a skeptical attitude but I have met these people and
    completely believe them. I also look forward to hatching more of their eggs.

    Delaware & 1 Buff Orp(Jimmy) roos that I need to cull but just can't. Jimmy
