Had two baby bellneck birmingham rollers hatch today. They will be going into the kitbox in about 5 weeks to start their journey of rolling here in the back yard. Hopefully they will make it and all will work out. Looking forward to this summer!

I hope they roll good for you! you should post some pics!

PSU, have they paired up yet? If they have just give it time, dont stress them out.

I have two 24 days old and two 9 day old homers, its amazing to watch them grow so fast. I cant wait to see them start to fly.

Ryan,

Do you still have the bells and blacks in the small coop? Make sure they have plenty of grit, plenty of food in front of them all the time, and maybe consider a vitamin supplement in their water. That's all I did with mine and they took right off. With this weather starting to warm up like it is, they oughta start gettin jiggy wit it any time now.

Have you paired up any of the others?

Thanks for sharing the pix - I always visit this site over my first cup of coffee in the morning - and there is no better way to start the day than seeing precious pidjie newborns! Oh, and the mum is lovely too!
