My 2 girls are showing a little (just a few spots) red bleed through on their backs. Neals boy has turned fairly yellow(pale buff) in places.
Neals girls also show a bit of the red bleed through. I had thought it might just be that they were dirty. Lots of red dirt. But with the comments here it might be more.
My hatchery dels I have here get very brassy if they have lots of sun. They molted a while ago and are pretty much white again.
Here are some pics though of the birds out at Neal's sorry for the poor quality pics I just wanted to get some quick shots.
This is the Oldest Pullet at Neals She is very similar to my Pullet Ive show before with solid rather than barred neck feathers.
We have about 4 or 5 Dels in this group of about 18 birds but their barring is crazy. (the other birds in here are RIRxWhite Leghorn)
The closer one here looks like a right mess.he has so much barring everywhere that he looks like someone dipped a barred rock in bleach
With all the barring the only way to tell the males in this group is by the long lanky legs
This is an older group of brids and we only got 1 Del here (the pullets should be coming to POL) He has the nicest look of the lot of boys so far,
And here are some pics of the parent birds.
