The only roosters in the barn look like the Mama hen. Stripes. It is true that the two roosters hatched last Labor Day were referred to as "Mr. Orange" and "Mr. Pink", and both of them had Egglebert as their father. The leg color, then, must be influenced by the mother's legs. I think. So which hens have orange legs? I'll have to do some research, off the top of my head I don't remember bright orange hen legs. Then again, I don't have any white hens, either!
I sure hope white baby is a girl!
We had some flooding from a thunderstorm last night, very soggy lawn. But the chickens were delighted to be allowed out after dinner.
And that's the update for today. Hope you're caught up!
