    Ok, so two frizzles(?) just popped out of the shell. (waiting on the rest to even pip). Both look black and are very noisy. [​IMG] Question; I never seem anything like this but the one is huge and has a pink comb already? [​IMG]

    [​IMG] My last hatch I had two HUGE eggs, and I got two HUGE chicks. One is clearly a roo at this point (3 weeks old) and the other is debatable.

    Maybe the comb is a mutation?

    I could see some comb on two of my current batch the day they hatched, and I've known for about 2 of their 3.5 weeks of life that I have 4 roos.

    That's OK, they are for the freezer. Might keep the pullet.

    Quote:We are lucky here. Most feed stores take extra roos and sell them to those that wish to process. I don't have the stomach for it.

    Me either de. [​IMG] How old do they have to be before you turn them into chicken for the table? I don't know about this little roo. I think he is a cochin frizzle. May keep him! I'll have to see. I'll post photos shortly.
