    I've had these babies about 3 weeks now and just haven't had the time to get photos of them until today. They are about 3 1/2 months old. Thanks, Mike...[​IMG]

    I'm going to check out the classes for the Jan. show and watch them another few weeks. I don't think they'll be ready. Birds really shouldn't be shown until they're about 8 months old or so...at least for the best showing! They can't complete well because they just haven't feathered in enough before 8-9 months. At least that is what one of the judges told me at a show...[​IMG]

    That one cockerel in the top pic is going to be really nice. It's always good to see the cushion higher than their head by 3-4 months...a good sign!!
