    In my experience, the roos were crowing long before 6 mnths of age. They're sure pretty whatever they may be [​IMG]

    I got these from Marie Martin. I was just curious what they were, not that it really matters, they are going to a new home [​IMG]

    They are much smaller than the rest of the bantys and don't do well outside. 1chick magnet is coming to pick them up this weekend, she so spoils her chickens [​IMG]

    I just got my first silkie. She's pretty darn small!

    I'm sorry you had to rehome them! [​IMG]
