weeks old so the red comb and wattles should mean it is getting ready to lay soon.
Here is my boy around 20 weeks.
yes that pic was taken just 3 days ago. I hope you right and its a pullet, I really don't need any more Roo's have more than I need by a long shot now.
I moved HER and HER buddies to the main coop tonight they were not happy at all. But oh well they will get over it.
Do they perch? I have only seen her on a perch a couple times, most the time she is on the floor or in a box.
Or is something wrong with my perches?
wonder why mine don't???
Mine stays to herself most times at night, during the day she is always with the BM.
I don't have one that close to the ground so I will try that and see if it makes a difference, thanks for the ideal.
The first photo is one of the three Silver laced "pullets" I ordered last June. Don't think "she" is going to be laying any eggs in the near future, or ever for that matter. The other 2 pullets are seen in photo #2 (with the cockerel ) and photo #3. These are my first Cochins and I have only been raising chickens for a little over a year. I had not considered breeding as I was expecting 3 hens. But seeing as one is definitely going to be a rooster (hasn't crowed yet), do you think they are breeding quality? Any and all opinions will be appreciated.
