    Hello, I have had 2 Java hens for the last ... 2 days ... yep I am very new at this. My hens are supposed to be about 30 weeks old. They are beautiful but already huge with big feet. Would any of you have any info on what a 30 weeks old Java looks like, please ? They are already laying, which is wonderful. I just want to make sure I am getting what I ordered and not some old hens. Thank you.

    First, Welcome to BYC!

    2nd, huge feet usually mean old hens. It's why I hatch them out or order them as chicks.

    ... and then I keep meticulous records so I can sell them before they are 2.
