I have some hens now but no rooster. As I was getting them out I saw a white one then remembered you can tell the different between them because the cockerals are white when they hatch. I thought they changes colors as their feathers came out. But they didn't they are still white. So could I...
I just ordered 20 Golden Comets and deacon is right they lay great for 2 years then slow down. But they lay jumbo eggs and I keep mine as pets also, I let them free range to help with feed but in the winter mine did not do so good.
Just an update on these. Mine lay Jumbo eggs. I had to buy egg cartons just to close the box and still some eggs are so big I can't close the Jumbo cartons.
AND I got another on yesterday that was bigger then this one. Now they don't all lay them that big but that is my hand.
I've had 8 out of 13 hatch so far and I think that's all I'm going to get. I will post pics a little. I don't think thats to bad for not being able to candle. Congrats to all you new mommies and daddy's out there. Here they are, 8 out of 13 I think that will be all I have.
