    I was thinking that these guys were BB's but the hens have laid a ton of eggs and I sent some to my SIL (Vo-Ag Teacher in WV) and all but 1 was fertile. They lost power and they all died, but they were almost completely developed. I read that BB's couldn't breed, because Tab A couldn't reach Slot A because of the size of the breast. So, it sounds like they are probably midgets and spanish. Thanks!!!
     
  5. Yup, sounds like midgets, they BB's cant breed cause of their size and something to do with their amples..(learned that from someone...dont really want to know what amples are...)
