I thought I'd share some updated pics of my cockerel I'm going to keep for breeding and my two pullets I ended up with. They are growing out nicely!

My cockerel is 22 wks. old and one pullet is 22 wks. old with the other one being 18 wks. old. I have my fingers crossed that I will be seeing an egg in the next several weeks from my oldest pullet!

I'm very happy with the way the 18 wk. old pullet is turning out. Her coloring is right and her body shape looks good. Can't wait to start hatching out some more of these babies!

I'm excited to have these chickens in my flock and even more excited that they are so close to egg laying age now!

Oh, Stacey - they're beautiful! As I scrolled, I was thinking that I personally liked the 18 week old a bit better...then you stated you liked her really well, too! Great chicken minds think alike, eh?

BEST of luck with them - I know you're worked really hard on your breeding!
