    Here is my BR Stella. She is wild! Do you think she might be a fella? Her comb is just now getting red. She DOES NOT have rear plumes...she was sold to me as a pullet by a reputable store. She has not laid any eggs yet.

    Stella is a girl, for sure. The bird in my avatar is one of my BR roosters, Zane. See that great big comb and his lighter color?

    Won't be long now, I'd say. My BRs usually start from 19-22 weeks, some a bit later.

    My BR starting laying last week at 20 weeks. My other ones have not yet started, but they are squatting and seem very close. Don't give up - your're almost there!

    Thanks everyone! I really adore her cause she is spunky and her pal Sun in the pic is sort of a lazy gal. So they are great friends!
    Every night Stella jumps up the whiskey Barrell to roost until we cme put them in their cage. Sun the Red one, does not roost much...and there she was tonight next to her pal Stella! I had to take pic!
