I'm guessing your dad has more use for them being chickens?
What will he do if they turn out being roosters, sell them?
Yes, there is always more use for hens than roos. And, yes, he sold the last few roosters he hatched. He doesn't have much trouble placing them since he hatches few, and they are purebred.

Just wanted to note: this little chick has a black smudge on the back of his head. In my years of experience, I have found that in this breed, a hatchling with such a stripe or streak is usually a boy--NOT always, but usually. So, this little fella is likely a roo. But, not necessarily :)

He's drying off, but no, he's not fluffy yet. I'm not taking him out of the incubator for a while. I'd really like to see another one hatch first... He'll be lonely in the brooder by himself, and he will peep loudly. He's okay where he is right now. I think he can hear the faint sounds made by the other(s).

Thanks :) I'm really hoping for at least one more. I don't want the little fella to be lonely.

Re: *New Update* Come Hatch With Me

Update: Okay, we have a second egg pipped. It appears to have pipped a little low down, though, maybe on the wrong end. If that is the case, I may have to end up helping. However, I will give it every chance to hatch on its own first. Intervention should be a last resort.

Me too, Allison. There's nothing sadder than a lone baby chick. They do much better with a companion.
