With the help of this site, this newbie hatched 2 Golden penciled Hamburgs (out of 8 ebay eggs) on July 3. The cockerel is starting to get green tailfeathers and will probably be pretty enough, but his pink toes bother me. Does anyone know if this is a fault? I don't have the standard of perfection for the breed (seemed overkill to get it for two chickens at this point) but I don't want to breed him to the lone hen that I have or any future hens I plan to hatch (from a good breeder this time). These little guys seem kind of a waste for a meat bird as they are 5 pounds tops live weight. I will try to get some pictures of his feet, but I didn't have anyone out there but the kids. The very tips of his toes are pink. SHort video, for fun, of the two. Thanks so much. I don't post a lot here, but I read something every day!
