    Omelette is the one in back. She has more tail feathers than Margaret, and more of a comb. They are about the same age, 4 weeks old. Is she still a girl? They are both supposed to be pullets. I'm so paranoid LOL.

    LOL they are black australorps...their legs are huge aren't they? And the ones in question belong to Omelette. They also have necks that make me think they are related to ostriches!

    with my B.A.'s the tail feathers always come in first in the girls, the roos will have almost no tail feathers for a couple weeks after the girls start.[​IMG]

    Whew! That's good. I really like my little Omelette, though I'm [​IMG] as I watch her cute yellow fuzz go to black feathers!
