    Snapped a couple of quick pics of a few of the Gilbert BA's. They are 10 weeks old.

    The Hupp Blue australorps are just over 12 weeks old.
    For size reference, that is a one gallon water fountain.

    The smaller one in the back of the last three pictures is a Black Penedesenca.

    They are very sweet too!

    They do not try to fly over the top of the pen either.

    Thanks for the broodiness clarification. All of these australorps are looking real good! I'm not in town now, but when I get back I'll introduce my now 16 wk. olds to the hens.

    That's why the feed companies supplement with B vitamins in medicated feeds , to correct Niacin and thiamine deficiencies. How many people routinely use Corid/ amprolium. and supplement with B vitamins? Too few.
