The couple oldest were hatched on new years weekend and then a few every week for a month or so. So they'd be 12-16 weeks roughly? Maybe a few a little younger?
Thank you he's the one that I'm watching the closest. I like his size, type and color. I think he's the only one that's showing some copper saddle feathers so far. He's one of two from shipped eggs and the only cockerel from them. All the rest are from my own eggs. I'm really hoping for a good group.
You're Right, a lot of the girls are too dark but there are a couple with really nice copper hackles. One has a little tiny bit of mossiness but such a tiny bit that it's hard to see unless you're looking for it. Most of the girls are daughters of the rooster that I had last fall. He was too dark but had good type. Their mother is of ok type with decent hackles.
Thank you everyone for your comments I'm feeling pretty good about this group!
They are very nice! I hope I get some nice ones out of my 15 chicks.
