    Here are my little blue girls, I've had these lovely ladies about a month. The are only about 20-22 weeks old.

    Two have even started to lay.. in fact the two layers have laid an egg a day each for a whole week!!

    We have named them according to subtle colour differences in the feathers & nails, Cuckoo (as she has a few cuckoo feathers on her front) Big red (as she has a copper front) Black eyes (the devil bird!) Black toes & White toes. Silly names I know, lol![​IMG]

    Here are some pics! (sorry of they are a bit big!)

    Well I bought them as blue marans, but I'm not 100% sure.
    I just wanted pets & eggs so I'm not that fussed.
    I guess I'll know if the eggs go dark or not! [​IMG]

    Quote:Yeah he's funny (I say he, but no idea if a he or she lol!)

    I nursed him back to health & released him in the garden, he lives in the tree now.
    I think he steals a bit of the ladies food, but they don't seem to mind him [​IMG]
