    I don't think so seeing how my BO rooster is still young- only around 5 months old. I got Roo ( BO rooster) when he was 13 weeks old. I think they're a cross between a BO and a RIR.

    She's still sitting outside and it's RAINING here! Babies under her.
    What surprises me Mama will allow me to get very close to her as long as I talk to her in a soothing, calm manner but I don't attempt to touch her or the babies just kneel close by her.
    I did notice one of babies has white from eye to eye that goes under the chin/ head. It's so adorable. Maybe at some time I'll get brave and attempt to hold that baby.

    So far she hasn't made a move to come after me while I've been close to her. I did a little editing on a pic so the babies could be seen better. Can anyone take a guess at how old the babies are? IMG_20170714_193001.jpg They've got to be older than what they look seeing how when I've been out there they have been sticking close to Mama but have been pecking at the ground and scratching.
