    Here are a few pictures some young pullets around 5 months old. Not laying yet. Young black Cockerel. He is large and has nice comb and dark eyes.

    Ooh! Willie is SOoo Handsome! No bet he is doing good with the ladies! [​IMG]
     
  3. Pretty birds! I have a blue cockerel, a very light splash pullet & three black pullets. I may sell one of the black pullets because I don't need three....but yours are very pretty!
     
  4. Beautiful, the blue ones almost glows, the color almost illuminates.

    Thank you all. Willie is from show stock and I think he has very nice comb and wattles. Have some eggs in the bator from him due to hatch in 9 days.
    Marina so glad you got your eggs okay. Wow it took a long time to get there when you are so close.
