My Brabanters are now six months old and as pretty as ever but the cockerels have become competitive. So I put the cockerel with the best color pattern in a separate area because the other cock has the best crest. AAnnnnnnd today I found my first Brabanter pullet egg. boy I am impressed with the size for the first egg. WOW it is as big as the six month old Orpington's eggs and she has been laying for two weeks. I promise pictures for tomorrow.
