    About how big are they? they look like fancy breeds where did you get them?

    The whitish ones look like splash Andalusians, the black one looks like a Black sex link, and the Barred ones look like a barred rock but she has pink legs like a Maran.

    I think they look about 15 weeks + They look about the size of mine.
    I have a Cuckoo Maran and a cream legbar about 15 weeks and 4 Mutts Leghorn x Speckled Sussex 16weeks about that size. Yours look really lovely where did you get them????

    Quote:Wow!! We was told around 9 wks but thought the australorp was slightly older or a roo (its a pullet). We just bought them from somebody local i think he breeds them, he had quite a few to choose from.

    On the two smaller 1s of mine there comb is only slightly showing and the black 1 is showing quite alot more, so i think yours maybe abit older. I guess the only way i will know is when they kindly leave me an egg [​IMG]
