    Umm, just wondering, how many brown males and how many brown females did you give me? I'm wondering because I thought I kept my females, the A&M and the largest roo, but when I was in the cage earlier today, I don't think I have a roo in there... Please let me know how many were sent as butcher birds and how many were breeder birds? Lol. I think I butchered my breeder male. [​IMG] Dear god, I knew I should have waited until AFTER I got some real rest...

    Ummmm sorry but I cannot remember an exact number on the males...I'm thinking 6-8......the females were 5-6 and the Texas A&M bird. Hey if you need another male I'm sure I can find one for you. If not I can always hatch you some chicks lol.

    I'm thinking bird #3 is maybe the male?

    I may have to buy a new male from you if you do have another one from this batch (or others close to the same age). Otherwise, I do have 19 jumbo eggs from Chris in the bator, plus other eggs coming later this month. I can always use a roo from Chris's birds for awhile, then switch him out for a roo from the other eggs, and use a roo from those eggs for these birds.

    Ohh, BTW, Sam, when your birds from the same group start to lay, please let me know. I'm just hoping that mine will start to lay soon... lol. Hopefully they don't pull the same stunt that my first batch of buttons pulled (12 weeks and still nothing).
