    I'm interested in seeing pictures of them somewhere around 8 weeks old.....
    you know, teenagers....

    In fact, if you pictures of your teen Blacks and/or Blues, I'd like to see them, too.

    There are pictures of chicks and pictures of adults at Feathersite, but it's the no-longer-young and not-yet-grown-up ones I'm interested in seeing.

    Thanks.

    SusanJoM~ I think Ameraucanas go through an ugly teenager stage. They loose the baby fat fuzzy faces before getting their adult faces. I don't know how to describe it very well. I can take some pictures tomorrow. Pips&Peeps might have some pictures to share too. [​IMG] I don't have standard silvers though, only bantams in that color. I think I have some black teenagers that I can take pics of.

    Oh sure, I'll be glad to share them. I wont have LF lavenders hatch until spring because my LF lav are both cockerels, so I have to breed them to the split chicks I hatched. Pips&Peeps may be ahead of me because I think she got a pullet. [​IMG]

    I think that's a typical problem [​IMG] I don't dare count mine. I figure as long as I don't acknowledge the number there isn't a problem. [​IMG] I know it's over a 100, but that's as far as I'll go. Of course I'll cull a lot once I go through them all.
