I have a new rooster in my ameraucana pen. This is his first real hatch. His fertility rates weren't that great, but he definitely made some pretty babies. Hopefully he'll get the hang of the fertility business soon and I get a better hatch rate. In the meantime, these five sweeties popped out yesterday.
The lighter chicks are splash (meaning they will be white with blue smudges). At least two are splash. At least one is blue. I can't decide on the other two yet. They are either dark splashes or light blues. I'll have to wait for real feathers to know for sure.
