These two are the early arrivals…
The test hatch is out, and more are pipping. The count right now is 5 black and 7 wheaten/blue wheaten.
The first hatch of the season, my test hatch for fertility, went in the incubator today!
28 eggs – 14 black and 14 wheaten/blue wheaten. Hatch Date – 2/18/16!
Seems like it took forever to get to this point, but after much deliberation, back and forth, yes, no, and maybes, and after coming very close to accidentally culling the wheaten, I have finally decided on my keeper wheaten and blue wheaten cockerels for this year.
