    I left a few comments on the photos. We really need side shots showing their heads and bodies to judge them. I found one possible cockerel. Have you wormed these birds? Some are very pale in the face.

    I just read your comments. The ones you said were cockerel are the same bird. I kinda figured as much because of behavior within the last few weeks. I did worm them at 8 weeks. Yes I agree they all look pale in these pics. The pictures don't look like that until I upload them on this site. The coloring on this site is way off from the coloring on my camera and PS Vita. In real life the differences in combs is a lot different.

    Anyone have any ideas as to what I can do to make the coloring true to the picture taken on this site? All the color in the photos should be different.

    Thank you DragonLady i will try to get better pictures. Maybe hubby can figure out the color differences.

    thedragonlady...My BO hen is quite pale. I was told the pair was 7mo old but her comb is pale and no waddle so I think she's younger. The roo is much redder than the pic shows. I was told they were wormed...but maybo they weren't??? Should I worm them? And what should I use?

    You need to now to do 2 wormings at 10 day intervals with Safeguard 10% Liquid Goat Wormer. 1/4 cc by syringe in each beak. NO NEEDLE, it goes down their throats ! Have you dusted them for mites and lice too ? Permethrin dust is available at TSC, as is the goat wormer.

    They look about 4-5 months to me. Get Safeguard 10% liquid Goat Wormer from TSC, and give each one 1/4 cc in their mouth/beak.REPAET is 10 days. Dust with Permethrin dust too, also at TSC.

    What is TSC? I looked for the goat wormer at the local feed store and they don't carry it :( No I haven't dusted them yet and was about to get some DE on Friday. What is Permethrin dust? Will it harm them or me if inhaled like the DE does? Sorry for my ignorance

    Well thank you. At least you helped with one. Although that sucks because we don't have one
