Updates on my new flock

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I've posted a couple of pictures of my birds in various threads, but wanted to update you on how they are all looking.  I have six pullets (hopefully!) in all.  1x buff orp, 1x barred rock, 1x cuckoo marans (supposed to be a barred rock but the legs aren't yellow), 1x welsummer, 1x easter egger, and 1x light brahma.  The brahma, welsummer, and marans are around 19 weeks old, and the buff orp, barred rock, and EE are about 16 weeks old. They still look like pullets to you all?  Hopefully they will start laying soon as Ive begun to notice their combs start to pink up/begin to redden.

All pullets. They look like they are still a month or so from laying, it might be longer due to the shorter days of fall/winter.

They're all pullets. :)

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
