    Here are some of the few whites I hatched from my own birds. They all look really well. The first one is a four month old pullet. I had two pullets and four cockerals hatch in this batch.

    Next is a 8 week old. She is going to be great.

    Next is a buff that is four months and she hatched from Jody's buffs. I hatched 11 and only got two pullets. Both are clear but this one actually looks the best.

    My goodness! Who would have ever thought chickens could look like this???? I think they are too cute to be live animals! The buff is to die for. So absolutely adorable.
    My daughter had a fit, she wants some so badly.[​IMG]

    Thank you. I think the white pullets are awesome too. I will be showing them in the fall and adding them to my breeding pens. I am very pleased with this years Blacks/ whites/ and blues. Still hoping for improvement in buff and splash. I have one show hen buff and my buff Roo has done very well showing. I have some young hatches from them that are looking promising. As soon as I get a whole group separated I will try and get some pictures.
