    Awwww!!! You have Buttercups, too! [​IMG] How old were they when they started to lay? Buddy was born April 15 (my birthday!!) but she's still not laying as far as I know.
    Very pretty girls!

    My buttercups are 18 weeks old right now, no eggs from the yuonger flock yet. They're so pretty to look at! They won't let me catch em yet! Maybe when they start to lay, they'll submit to me!! :thun

    4 out of the 5 - 22 weekers have started to lay this week, not regularlly yet tho! I got 11 eggs from 4 of them last week! [​IMG]

    Your Sicilian buttercups look like my Golden Campine. What is the difference between the breeds?

    Your flock is beautiful, by the way! Congrats on the eggs. [​IMG]

    I'm not sure! Does your Golden Campine have two combs and green legs?

    She does have green legs but doesn't have the 2 combs. I know that campines are 'supposed' to have blue legs...

    It doesn't matter, was just surprised to see such a resemblance!

    What beautiful birds...

    Maybe the comb is what makes the difference, I remembered someone posting one of thier pics and calling it a Campine and I thought how odd. Now it's good to know th edifference. I learn something new everyday! [​IMG] Thanks!

    Sweet! They all came from the local feed store - so I'm prety sure it's standard stuff that the feed store buys. I just found out after I got these that there was a feed store not to far from me that DOES carry a more unique variety! Dang it! But I love my girls nonetheless! I took pics of this morning and sent them online to walmart and had prints made, bought 88 cent frames and about to hang them all on the wall in the family room. My foster kids thinks im nuts and beg me not to do it, so they won't be embarrased when their friends come over!! [​IMG] This is a redneck town - I told them not to worry about it!! [​IMG]
