Fall Hatch!!

So our legbar chicks arrived over the weekend.  Our first fall hatch was pretty small.  One of our young, new roosters proved not fertile so the hatch rate plummeted.  Blaze, Ice and Liam however are still producing great chicks from their ladies.   We hope to hatch more in 21 days to make up for our low numbers.

We got a majority of roosters in this batch.  Cute little guys, but re-homing roosters is always a challenge.  We plan on growing them out and then doing a breeding selection from them.  Anyone want a rooster?

We are quite happy that Blaze and his new hens produced very nice light chicks!  Look at these beauties!!
