    Sally I hope you have an extra isolation pen because if i do not soon find a home for the serama i just may box them up and send them to your doorstep,,,,,I can not stand the crow of the little grow,,,,,it really does sound like he is sucking on a helium balloon.

    Different bloodlines mature at different rates. I can not specify which is which. Just choose the one that is best for you. I have a bachelor pad. Its like a grow-out pen for older birds, to see which ones I may want to keep. This method is good to test you "own" bloodlines too. Keeping a bunch of birds until they are older help you learn what you see in chicks, what kind of adults they might turn into. As for maturing, you should see, the "sign" at 6 months for sure, then you can compare like aged birds only, then at 9+ months you can compare all of them. One thing I do notice is Splash and Blues take longer to mature. Well the lines that I have. The roosters I am talking about. Hens are pretty much even here for there grow out rate. The roosters don't meet there full genetic potential until 18 months, I start culling way before that! 6.5 lbs. is fine, he will probably finish at 7.5, if he is a slow grower 8.5. The 10 lb. boy, don't keep him just because of his size, he should have other stuff you want to add to your flock. To get a lot of blue this year I am having 2 breeding pens, for phase 1, 2 splash roosters with black hens, and blue and black roosters with blue and splash hens. That combo will give me the highest yield of blues, and still give me blacks to put in with the splash roosters. I hope this is not to confusing for you!!!

    I will see what I can squeak out for you. I have a black cochin cockerel, with a blue cochin hen these are LF. I have ameraucanas too! There is a blue rooster with cuckoo marks, not from my eggs, mail order ones. I have 1 light blue, and 1 dark blue rooster for sale also. I am still undecided on the black roosters. I swear I am going to have to keep all of them until 18 months!!! As for pullets I have some 8 week olds, and 3 week olds. Of course roosters that age also! I have black and blue, no splash pullets. No marans sorry :-( You can PM me if you like.............
