    I got 4 more bantam BR's from a friend of mine. A roo and 3 hens. They are of laying age and since he has lights, they should still be laying at least for a while. I don't have lights so I am sure they will quit as soon as they figure out it gets dark here. [​IMG]
    Also, I am taking 3 of them to the show in December. The roo and 2 hens.
    So I now have 7 bantam Barred Rocks in my poultry collection. So cool!! [​IMG]

    They are gorgeous! I see that crisp, even barring much more in bantams than large fowl. They are lovely birds.

    I think I might keep these guys and sell the RIRs I have. [​IMG] My RIR roo has problems breeding his hens. [​IMG]

    Does that mean that you'll soon run out of room for your Jaerhons?!? After seeing all your pics, I've decided that I definitely want to go with that breed...so, because I am so big hearted, and such a giver, I will willingly provide a new home for all your Jaerhons. (Can you sense the need for hip boots at this point?!?! It's getting deep!)

    I will have to look at his tail up close. That black might be a shadow maybe. Or black in a feather. Easily remedied. Just pull it out!! [​IMG]
