    The 2 chicks hatched here by my broody hen are both roosters. Americana hen x RIR/Gold Comet rooster cross. I think they are 5 months old now-

    They are not very pretty but I do like the coloring on one- Wasn't a good mix! LOL But the fertile eggs were freebies. Both are gangly, very long legged, and they move like they have difficulty putting the leg forward. Both have same issue with the larger one more pronounced. He is twice the size of his brother. He actually will get to where he is going and drop down to the ground. Both spend a lot of time like this together.

    Could it just be they are not a good mix?
