My chicks at 4 weeks

Well, I've finally stopped playing with them long enough to get some pictures  :P
Here are my babies:


I think these two are roos. They are the only grey colored ones in the bunch:

They love their sandbox:

This one has already found a place on my shoulder:

Look familiar?  :lol:

They look great! :applause:

Is that a roo in the foreground of the sandbox shot? And if so, would he be hetero for barring? That's a lot of red... I've not seen that much red on a roolet.

Re: My chicks at 4 weeks

Yes it's a roo.  I will post another pic of him.  It may just be the way the pic turned out.   Anyone want to weigh in on what they think about the hetero for barring question?  I don't know what to say there. :huh:

Re: My chicks at 4 weeks

Thank you.  I'm so happy with them! :love:

Here is a picture of the roo outside in natural light.  He's not as red looking as the other pic.

And another inside pic showing the difference:

Re: My chicks at 4 weeks

He is not heterozygous for barring in my opinion, he looks like a nice keeper/breeder so far to me :thumbs:

Re: My chicks at 4 weeks

Yeah, that's I was thinking  :)
And, he's quite a baby too.  He loves to fly up and roost on my shoulder and play with my hair.

He's gorgeous! Lovely chicks! One thing, watch the sand,aybe add some coarse grit. They can ingest too much and impact.

I'll wager he's going to look awesome in his next set of feather, - his barring is tight and even!
