    Perhaps even longer. Mine are well bred, more on the heritage side. Deep red, brick bodied. Closer to the Standard of Perfection than many so-called RIR. They took their fine sweet time. A full 25 weeks. I took that as a good thing.

    I'd say maybe 4-5 months. [​IMG]
    We thought we had them at first coz the guys at the store weren't clear about breed.
