    Shelley, those are three pullets. [​IMG]

    Cubalaya females should reach around 4 lbs at maturity. Most hatchery fowl have been found to only reach the 2 lbs mark. It will take them a good year or two to mature fully, though they will start laying around the 8 month mark.

    Quote:Really? All pullets? Even the one with the black breast? And the other "big" one has a black "undercoat" to it's breast feathers, and they both act VERY roo-ish and even at this young age, their combs are much more pink/red than the 3rd one. [​IMG]

    Thanks for letting me know. Now maybe someone will want them even more. [​IMG]

    Quote:The one with the black in her feathers is what we (breeders) call "smutt" wheaten. She will throw some nice black breasted red sons. My pullets and hens tend to act very spirited from time to time. If they were young stags, they'd be much darker all over.

    Here's a young gold duckwing stag at 3 months old, just substitute red for the gold:
