    My babies are due any day now! The thing is....I don't know when! I started a new job 2 days ago and so far it has been very demanding, I have to go in for a little while tomorrow, but I have Sunday and Monday off! I hope they come on one of those 2 days!!

    I just checked and no pipping yet!

    [​IMG] Excitement, anticipation, AND suspense; what a great combination! [​IMG] Sending good hatching vibes your way, Bec!

    My little black Delaware Blue Hen pullets are laying, and I've decided that later this spring I'm going to use Jake (one of the Blues Bothers [​IMG]) to breed. Do you know if the guys at the University of Delaware have a "standard" of what they want or desire in the breed?

    I wish I had a better answer for you, I am not clear myself. I am taking Ceasar to the fair in the summer, so I will find out for sure then what is preferred!
