Hi, does anyone out there raise Silver Penciled Rocks? This breed is new to us, I am wondering how old the pullets are before they grow in the plumage which will indicate their true quality? Our oldest pullets are about 8 months old now, their marking pattern is not as distinct as their moms. I am wondering if the original trio just doesn't produce up to their quality, or if, like so many breeds, they just take a year or two to fully mature? This is a photo of our original birds at about 1 1/2 years old. And a current shot of our original male at the Hollister, CA show 2014.
