    My girls are almost old enough to start laying eggs.

    I got them from mpc and I think they are finally looking like the photo's they had on the catalog.

    I think they are beautiful. So I thought I would post their picture.

    They are! They lay nice eggs too. Not the most friendly breed but pretty.

    Oooohhhhh....so my baby GLW girl will someday actually look like a GLW??? [​IMG] But you're telling me I have to wait HOW many weeks??? Are your lovely hens about 20 weeks???? So what do they look like in between??? Mine is just a baby now, and looks absolutely NOTHING like a GLW. Yours sure are gorgeous!! [​IMG] Oh...mine came from MPC too....

    Hmmm...do you agree with the other poster's comment about them not being a very friendly breed. My GLW chick is one of my most skittish...and I only have 5 chicks.

    Quote:I have 3 GLW's, 24 weeks old and I think they are beautiful. They did not look like the pictures until they were quite big....they looked odd as youngsters:/ Mine vary in temperament.....one is very friendly and inquisitive, one is getting much friendlier since she is 22+ weeks old and one is shy and quiet but follows the others to come when called and for treats.... They all were a bit stand-offish when they were between 4 and 12 weeks old. My EE is also a bit shy...
    Love the pics!!!
