My tiny BA chicks I got the first of May have turned into the most gorgeous BA hens. They are just starting to lay and the eggs are so small but I have confidence the eggs will get bigger. These hens are not even 6 months old but are bigger than my previous flock of Isa Browns. Their feathers shine blue green in the sun and they still are losing baby feathers of their fluffy butts! I took these as they were foraging in the garden.
