I acquired 3 pullets(Buckeye, Barred Holland, & Black Austrlorp). I have no clue how old they are. Can Anyone help? Here is a pic of the first 2, I'll add one of the australorp soon as I get a good pic. If better pics would be helpful let me know. Thanks for the help.

With several comments about finding it hard to obtain good quality Brabanters, has anyone purchased from Sandhill? Where have you found good quality stock? If our town changes it's regs, this is...
I like everything about it except how it looks right now. I know it lays decently. It is a great part of my great waterfowl flock.
First, watching a runner duck run is awesome. They can find their own food. They aren't like pekins in water. Mine haven't started laying but I heard their decent.
Its not as fat and slow as a pekin, but its not frail either. I want a mallard but I don't want a flying bird. The rouen is great for that.
They are my calmest birds and are easiest to catch. They eat less than Pekins. I heard they also lay well, but mine are younger.

Nope, not six months, both are much younger. Closer to 14 weeks on the barred pullet and 16-18 weeks on the Buckeye, (possible production red bird?). Is that a rose comb on the Buckeye?

I would guess close to 5 months. Faces are read but combs are small yet. Should be laying soon in my opinion.
