    Here is a sampling of the babies that hatched on the Thanksgiving Weekend. I had 19 eggs split between three broodies and the incubator.

    Yours are the same size as mine that my hen that I didnt know was setting in the barn brought up and it was freezing outside so we caught her and the babies and brought them in ...she stayed with them almost 2 wks and then I put her out and the babies stayed in ...they will be going out in about 4 or 5 more weeks if I can take the smell...they do make a stink dont they...

    OH MY yes, stinky is an understatement. I moved mine out to the coop yesterday. It is going through a warming cycle right now and they have the lights so I think they will be fine. If we have another cold snap, I will add a warmer light. They are so funny when they are released from the brooder. The little boys immediately started kick boxing. The bigger ones started jockeying for the Alpha slot. This is the first time I have not been able to let them see daylight for such a long time. I usually put them outside for 10 minutes a day from the time they are three weeks and increase the time out. With the weather so frigid they have had to live inside this whole time.

    Julie, The partridge ones are very nice with all that nice buff in there, Of course, I can't them.[​IMG]

    Katy, I got 7 out of nine roolettes. I have rehomed those boys and I will hatch out some more later one. They really are pretty birds. They remind me of Bobwhite Quail.

    I got more roos than pullets too! Mine will be rehomed at the poultry auction the end of the month. [​IMG] I really like how my older ones lay, but they are probably my most skittesh chickens when they're young.
