Last mixed clutch of the season

I have starting to move down the waiting so if you are on it please check your e-mails and phone messages. The chicks are all feathered out and I have to say this season produced a rainbow of colors and personalities. I have decided to keep two female chicks. One albino and another opaline, violet.
