    It has been forever since I posted. I just found our first eggs today. I was so happy and laughed at the size of one of them. I call it my cadberry egg. We ate them tonight. The bigger of the three had a double yolk.

    We discovered that we have a rooster but think that we actually have two. Here is the dominant one.

    Here is the other one that we think is a rooster.

    Our girls have gotten big. Here are some pictures of our flock.

    Oh, your big roo is *very* handsome.


    Is the hen a couple pics below your second roo a silver laced wyandotte?

    Quote:I have no idea. I have managed to identify the roos as barred rock but other than that I have no idea.

    Quote:Thank you. I have no clue what my hens are. The only ones that I know are the barred rock roosters. If anyone has knowledge about what my flock is please feel free to share.

    Well, I'm asking because I wasn't sure, lol. I'm brooding a bunch of silver laced wyandottes and I just can't wait to see what they look like when they grow up [​IMG]

    But, I've looked at a lot of pictures of SLW, and to me, she looks like one... but I could be wrong. [​IMG]

    Either way, you got a bunch of beautiful girls there. [​IMG]

    The one laying down with it's mouth open that is black and white is a Silver Laced Wyandotte hen.

    My hen, Domino, is one, and is almost identical...see? Domino is the one closest (with back to us) in the pic.
