    Is it me.... or.... are Columbian's just ugly babies?
    I also have RIR's, NH's, BR's and Black Stars all a little older than these birds and none of them ever looked like these do now.

    [​IMG] they are the oogly beautiful! Mine are going through that stage and man, only I could love them, they are all black (eventually one will have silver lacing and the other gold lacing) but right now - ooogly, and some dandruff that shows up really good on the black....they know how they look and are sad about it too:D

    I find that all three Columbian's have longer necks than the three Buffs do. I do like the way they will look in a few months!! [​IMG]

    I want you all to know that it takes a real man to talk about how cute his chicks are!!! LOL!!!
