    I think they grow all night long.

    With my RIR's I'll wake up in the morning and they look like different birds to me!

    Be patient.... My RIR hens got tails and wing feathers alot faster than the roos... mine are at 6 weeks... the roos have nice looking combs coming in, but the hens still have a little one....

    uh... you're scaring me now. That last pic, with them standing tall, I hope it was because they were scared to death that I lowered a big, silver camera into their home. They were crying and flapping all around...

    I WAS wondering about one of them, she(hopefully) is smaller than the others and is more easily scared than the others. Also, her comb seems SLIGHTLY more red around the edges that the other three. Maybe it's just me being paranoid, but I am worried now! I'll have to get another pic of her(PLEASE BE A 'HER').

    Mine all stand tall, also, when I am near their pen. Mine are supposed to be hens. Mine are about this age. They are growing so fast. It is fun watching them. [​IMG]

    I also let them outside for the first time today. The temp got to 80° so I figured they'd be ok. Here's pics:

    They weren't too sure about it...
