    My younger pullet Skye, who is laying now, is 24 weeks old. She is Suede's younger wife and I'd like opinions on her. I'll post a picture of Velvet below as well for comparison sake. I'm sure she has some filling out to do, but she's working on it, LOL.

    This is Velvet with Suede-don't worry about the bandage on Suede's foot. Because of his enormous bulk, he actually broke one of the crosspieces on his ramp and cut his foot. It seems fine, but I'm keeping it bandaged awhile.

    VEry nice looking pullet. Suede looks really great with his long tail feathers. Blue Boy has been through his first Moult and is just getting his tail feathers back in. If they are back in by Nov 9 I am going to show him at a show hosted by Auburn University

    LOL, remember when everyone was saying, "Hey, when's that boy gonna get a tail?" Well, he finally did, didn't he?
