Well, sad to say, five of the seven ameraucanas seem to be roosters. Sigh. It makes me glad I went ahead and did a third set of ameraucana eggs. Fingers crossed that they are mostly female. It's hard to have a breeding program if you have no hens! Here are some pictures of the boys. I'll be selling at least two of them.
Group shot. Aren't they lovely?
Look at that face!
The splash that is going. He's pretty, but not as friendly as the other. He's outta here!
This is the lone black roo. He is this amazing irridescent green over the black. You can only sort of see it in the picture. He also has the prettiest tail coming in. Lovely all the way around. He'll stay and go into the large fowl coop. He's Cheeto's replacement.
This is splash #2, also known as Alas Poor Yorrick. This is the baby I smushed in the coop door. I'm hoping he can stay. I think he's lovely. This is the darker of the blues. I have heard that a dark blue roo creates offspring with better lacing. I'm still doing a bit of research to decide if that's true.
