    the blue on the left in the top pic is frizzled, but posture is telling me roo [​IMG] . A couple more might be frizzled too, gotta wait a couple more days to be sure [​IMG]

    the back right blue was the one that was a day behind....

    i think the blues might have been from the molted hen cause there where some molted blues with her but they didnt make it.(from a breeder in KC)
    wow the chipmunk one sure has big eyes....
    PS thanks for posting them,i know i didnt hatch em but they are my first ever from my own eggs...i feel like a proud grandma...

    well, six out of eight is great for shipped, especially since the other 2 had blood rings, meaning they were also fertilized. Now you know your roo is doing his job [​IMG]
