    But that will be next spring, right? I think I'll be able to convince him by then. [​IMG]

    I hope they are laying by November, so I will probably be incubating by January/February. Given that, I would say I will be ready to start selling fertile eggs by March. You and sideWing will probably get yours a little earlier for the experiment[​IMG]
    I'm curious to see how they respond to a shorter flight vs sending them to Utah

    Looks pullets to me!!! It would have more polish like top hat for a roo.
    My 3 year old bounces lIke a flea too!!!! She is so busy. That sounds typical for a 4 year old. My 9 year is much easier to deal with until she gives me attitude.
    Yep...my hubby is getting sick of all my chicken talk. :lau. So I told him I didn't want to hear about his fishing. :gig
    Chicken addiction is better than a lot of addictions out there!!!! Lol#!!

    Also, the comb is almost non-existent and the wattles are very small and black. A roo would have larger wattles starting to redden up by 17 weeks.
    That's also a very nice blue on the ear lobes. Very similar looking to my silkies

    Thanks. I got her (and another that looks very much like her) about 10 weeks ago. The guy estimated them at 12 weeks, but since they have grown, I believe they were a few weeks younger than he thought. I know they lay a little later than others, so I guess their age will remain a mystery, but I'm glad to know that yall think pullet.

    Their wattles are very dark blue, and the ear lobes are gorgeous color. They aren't SQ of course (one doesn't even have leg feathers!) and they aren't even very nice chicks, but they are pretty. LOL
