    I consulted the calendar and yep, this teensy slip of a girl is 18 weeks old! Is that possible? Will she lay jelly-bean sized eggs?!

    What a gorgeous girl - she has great feet! Very pretty - if I was a rooster, I'd be strutting my stuff for her!

    I wish. Mine didn't start laying until they were almost a year old.

    She is looking real nice now. I bet she will grow that tail out when she gets a bit older. [​IMG]

    Shes cute Cyn. I am always amazed at how large my Bantam Araucana eggs are considering the hens are tiny.

    My DH adores little Shadow and she likes him much better than she likes me, LOL. At least she is a she and will lay eggs eventually.
