    well here they are Rhett and Scarlett -- they are doing great and growing so big !! they love it outside and where one goes the other follows - they do everything together and it is so sweet - if one losses sight of the other they start calling to each other until they are back together

    How old are they now, Julie? They look like two pullets there.

    I wish I could remeber when they were hatched out- these babies hatch under my silver laced cochin Lacey Bear and I cant remember when I got the eggs from -- I know I am bad chicken mom LOL

    I thought for sure Rhett ( standing up ) was a roo -- but if you think both pulletts I would be happy because I can keep both of them than [​IMG]

    The one on the left looks more like a pullet, but the one on the right doesnt look that much like a cockerel. Maybe a larger pic would help-my eyes are not what they used to be, lol. They look very healthy!

    I will see if DH will hold HIS GA peaches lol so I can get a few head pics for you -- I cant believe how thick these girls are they are pretty heavy bodied for being babies -- they are so active and love to eat thier veggies such good babies I have a feeling they are going to be HUGE !! I saw one of my banty cochin boys chasing Scarlett the other day - man that girl can run FAST LOL
