    Well Mikkeeeee their feathers are looking good. Usually mine don't totally feather till about 2 months where you can tell how dark they are going to be. I think yours look very hopefull at this point.

    So cute!

    Makes me sad that I didn't take pictures of mine when they were that little.

    Quote:They came from R&R hatchery in Macon County ( tuskeegee).
    He says these are the strain of RIR that he has worked on over the years.
    He had 21 chicks at the auction and 3 of us split the lot.
    I'm wondering about the color as they appear to be slightly more brown than red?

    He had a bunch of fertile eggs fo sale also.

    But, I want some of yours when they get going again!
    I dont guess I have ever seen a prettier bird than those you produce.

    Good lock at the show this weekend!!!!
