    I love seeing everyone's pictures and envisioning my little ladies all grown up. Just a few more weeks-they are getting big. I just hope they look somewhere near what thedragonladys birds look-you do have fabulous birds. Wish I had gone to you before getting hatchery but hopefully mine will be just as lovely!!!

    Oh BTW I should have the goat dewormer coming in this week.

    Update on the "new flock" we sold all of our bantams and purchased 29 day old easter babies. All but 1 turned out to be cockerels! we have culled out all but 4 of those in hopes of getting the best looking one to continue our flock. We also purchased 25 pullets about 6 weeks ago. I have received some much appreciated help here from a member but would appreciate more opinions as well. So which should be the lucky bird?

    "Big Boy"

    "Blondie"

    "bird C"

    Any and all opinions are welcome.

    I am NOT an expert in anyway, shape or form, but I like Big Boy. His coloring is pretty and his saddle feathers look lovelier than the others. The last one doesn't have a side shot so I couldn't really judge. They all look beautiful though. Why don't you keep the friendliest one?

    Does ANYONE have pictures taken from 6 weeks thru fully grown of roosters and hens? I would like to compare my buffs. Some seem to be developing kinda slow. I would love to see a series of pics of both genders please[​IMG]
