    I bet they will be very pretty when they all feather out - they can be any color. Good luck with your baby flock.

    @drumstick diva... They have all feathered out and are young adults now. They are beautiful and healthy.

    My profile pic is Juliette. The moment my phone comes out, she runs up and poses. She is one of the EE Bantams. The rest of the flock is behind her. I will get more up soon.
