    Just thought I would share a few pictures of the flock I picked up over the weekend. They are massive. The gal I got them from showed some and wanted to reduce her flock by half. I was just lucky I came around at the right time. Im going to try to weigh the biggest hen later on today. Im guessing she is close to 12-15 lbs. They have already layed me three eggs.

    Very Pretty. Hard to believe that the tiny tiny chicks I have in the brooder will grow up that big. [​IMG]

    Wow, gorgeous birds, Chris! That would really test my policy of never buying adult birds. What a temptation! Congrats!

    I was telling myself that too. I just could not resist these guys though. Im going to put one of my girls from my flock with them now to see if they are carriers of anything. She was going to go to auction, but I rather know if these birds are hiding anything.
