    I would like to add how happy I am with the eggs I bought. I had over 60% hatch rate with the eggs this last spring and now those babies are 5 months old and HUGE. The males are around 8 or 9 pounds each and the girls are almost as big. They have the sweetest personalities of all of my chickens and even my small nephew is not afraid to pick up my big rooster Rocky and cart him around the yard. He just sits in his arms like a doll and talks to the kids. You can't go wrong with these birds!! I highly recommend buying you won't be disappointed.

    When I hatched this batch out they started out in the house and my son was great about picking two or three to work with each night. He would bring them into the living room and sit on the couch with them petting and holding them. They all learned to step up and to sit on our hands. Harder for them to do now at 9+ pounds but they do still try. The girls will come running when they see us and take treats out of the kids hands so gently. They should start laying soon since Rocky is breeding like mad. Haven't found an egg yet but waiting patiently for it. Even if they never laid though I would keep them just based on their sweetness. They are amazing birds.

    now that winter is here it may take the girls a few more weeks to get the eggs flowing. when there combs start getting deep red then start looking for eggs and of course the egg song. there eggs will get huge after there first moult.

    So far Rocky's comb is bright deep red but the girls combs are lighter. They aren't doing egg song and so far have shown no interest in the boxes at all. But they squat for Rocky and are showing all the signs of being ready to start. I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will still lay even with winter coming. The weather hasn't gotten too bad yet but we get a deep freeze in January and February. Hoping to have eggs to hatch by February vacation. Fingers crossed.
