    I got the male last year when he was three weeks old, and I thought he was too young to breed!!! He is NOT too young!! YAY! I had to get him two adult hens about three months ago because he started to wander off. Now he has his own pen with his girls! Here's the new baby!!! It just hatched about 10 minutes ago!!!

    All I know is they will hang around the yard with the chickens and peacocks and are so funny! He used to "fight" with the elephant ears and my wind tractor![​IMG]


    I will post a better pic when he dries, and one of his dad!

    Here is the dad! He is still a little brown because he is young. I read that he won't be all silver until he is around two. He is one year old now!
