    [​IMG] is Wasp, one I am sure is a roo. His attitude, stance, comb and general appearance gives it away.

    [​IMG] is Hope, one that originated from KYTinPusher's flock. I will be interested to see how this one grows; this one remains very small for age but has feathered in nicely with dark brown flecks on the wing feathers.

    [​IMG] I suspect this one is also a roo, and he is very inquisitive and into everything.

    Sorry for the photobomb. I can't figure out how to resize via PB for iPad.

    There's one other, but that bird never sits still. I suspect it's a roo too.
    everyone had a huge growth spurt last week, but only a couple have combs that continued to enlarge. So I think I have 3 roo and 4 pullets. I can start there and will happily trade eggs or chicks in the future to get more colors.

    It looks like I have the one black, 3 rusty blue, 2 blonde and 1, the little one, as yet undetermined.

    Noble, OK
    I've noticed in just about all the hatches I've had, the girls are quite a bit smaller than the boys. I don't know if that's true for everyone tho. [​IMG]

    I candled my test hatch of SFH pullet eggs today, at 7 days. I put in 17 SFH eggs in total. I am pleasantly surprised to find only 2 out of 14 that are definitely not fertile, with 1 that is questionable. There are 3 more that are about 2 days behind the others that I believe are good, but will candle again in a few days to re-check them. Definitely 11, but probably 14, out of 17 that are developing! These are the first eggs that they laid (with the exception of one small misshapen egg) so I'm a little surprised, but thrilled. 100% on the 2 dozen EE's in with them so there will be little ones soon!
