    So how do you decide what chicks to keep?
    I just hatched out 8 (3/4serama & 1/4 Cochin chicks) (3 are frizzle) 5 are smooth 4 of the smooth are buff one is throwing some color.

    and then I have a crap load of Mystery chicks (10)
    I had a Barred rock EE Roo, and 4 laying hens
    a molted Java
    Plymouth Barred Rock
    white EE
    SLW

    [​IMG] Clearly I cant keep all of them...although Id love to!

    adorable! I think you should wait a bit and see how their personalities develop, I always like a friendly chicken [​IMG]
    But it also depends on if you have any kind of breeding program. Love the little frizzles!! Good luck!

    Yeah it just depends on what you want to do. Me myself, I would keep em all and rather the cockerel when they got old enough.
