Jody, no kidding, roosters!!! Of the 34 eggs that incubated (not the ones from Brian, still haven't figure out their gender, they are a little more difficult than my red hens and roosters), 20 were girls, 14 were boys. Yesterday a fellow came and bought 10 of the 14, the price was $7 each, they were 4 months old, that was good. He also bought 6 muscovy drakes at $22 each. He LOVES duck and roosters to munch on and the fact they they free range on so much land really got him excited.
I have chickens coming out of my ears!!! I still need to downsize to make room for all the ones that have been growing up from Brian's eggs, they are now 10 weeks old (2.5 months). One of the Brahma crosses is very aggressive, he already is attacking my hand when I feed them. I know he is a he. I think one of them is a BrahmaXAuracana because of the fat head and neck. They are pretty tamed because I have fed them every day by hand, but he is a tough dude already, he really liked to attack my finger if I have a bandaid on it, hee, hee. Hope he doesn't turn out mean because I will have to try to teach him to be nice like I did with Whoppo (if you recall, that didn't work for him though). Spring is just around the corner, winter solstice soon too. Beautiful day in this great and wonderful life, health. Cindi
