    YAY!!! Well I made the subject for Shelley to read since she's the one that knows about it the most. I had lost my only A &M male a while back because he molted during a really cold night (i mean molted most o fhis feathers it was horrible) and he froze to death before I even knew what was going on. Anywho...I got some hatching eggs something like 2 months ago, and I had one A & M hatch. I wanted it to be a roo, and then I was sure it was a hen and I was bummed as I'd have to hatch more eggs just to hope for a male. WELL he started acting aggressive today and being maley (he's still not crowing though) but i am certain he's a male...swollen vent area starting! YAY!!!! He's a great one for breeding too, PURE white! [​IMG]

    *happy dance*!
