Also forgot to say that Blue was always the largest chick and when I went to band them all with the recommended ABA bands size "E" (11mm) at 6 weeks, I could not get it over his fat foot. So I had to get him the next size up, size "F" (13mm) I now know to band the faster growing chicks earlier.

I'm so bad at updating this thread, sorry guys!

Here's some photos of my little guys from today. They are 16 weeks and 4 days old. The roosters are crowing pretty regularly now and trying to mate the hens. Though they are terribly bad at it and most of the time just grab a hen's head and hump the ground ha ha.

Splash Cockerel #2 had been named Elvis. Unfortunately I think his legs are outside of the standard and should be a slate blue, but I'm gonna show him anyway and see what happens as a learning experience:

Tiny, his legs are the correct color:
