    That is Squeaky. He is part salmon Favorelle. My Fav boys are quite the busy boys here. LOL Squiggy is top roo and Lenny is second in command. Squeaky got his name because he had the most god awful squeaky voice as a youngster and still does not quite have his adult voice yet.

    My turken pullet is 17 weeks now. How soon should I be getting eggs from her? I noticed today that a few of my teenage pullets (various breeds) are starting to get the redder combs starting up. I know that is a sign of impending laying. I'm hoping to see some eggs from them all soon. Also what color egg should I expect? I know they lay brown but how light or dark are we talking? The only other brown egg layers that I have currently laying are production reds.

    Mine are about 20 weeks and have not started to lay. The colors on the neck face and wattles do not mean much in NNs as they change all of the time. I had a pullet who had pink wattles very early but they kept changing from bright to pale. Steve W can tall you how old his girls were when they gave hime eggs or Kev our local guru.

    Hey Kev has your weather changed for the better ??? We now have days in the 90's and nights in the high 60's AAAHH ! Nice sunny low humidity too come on out folks get you shot of sunshine and Vitamin D

    But hurry cause it MIGHT not last long.

    This means "no feathers on neck" in Greek, they are a popualr breed in Greece and here in America. I Love Naked necks!! They even use White Turkens as egg producer in Greece lol

    My NNs started laying at about 22 weeks, so Flower and Marlowmanor, you should have eggs before the winter comes!

    Flower....I am STILL waiting for some of that sun. We are lucky to have low to mid 60s by day. The jet stream still hasn't moved far enough North for us to get anything but rain, cold, rain and did I mention rain?

    PG Maybe a vacation is in store for you. You could take a cruise to the Mediterranean or fly down to Sicily, Southern France or Spain. I'll meet you there.[​IMG]
