    So cute. I ordered 3 from Metzers to. They look like mine did 6 weeks ago and they are fully feathered now.

    I got my first 3 WH from Metzer [​IMG]

    It seems so long ago....

    The one eyeballing the camera turned out to be the queen of the flock. She is so smart it is spooky sometimes.

    I hope you enjoy your girls as much as I have enjoyed mine! [​IMG]

    Question: do you have to remove the leg bands? and if so, how do you do it and when? [​IMG]

    BTW, the little one is a stinker!

    Yes you do have to remove them. You can probably use pliers or something, I have never done it. Do it when they are young, so any time soon.

    you need to remove the bands asap because they are going to quickly outgrow them! you can take a pair of nail clippers or small scissors and snip them off
