Very nice pictures! How do you like them so far?
Sorry for the delay in replying,,,busy time of year for me
not sure about the molting, there are a few feathers in the coop but these are all in a mixed laying flock so who knows
as I recall there were 20mph gusts the day I took the pics so that might have played in,,,lol
there seems to be 2 lines of these blks in WI and maybe the Midwest, one lays a good sized darker egg, the other smaller tan eggs, I have 2 that lay the dark eggs, if/when I get a roo I will get them separated and only breed the dark egg layers
great birds no muss, no fuss, good foragers and really work in well with my flock,,,,,I do think they will still show some growth over the next few months
