I spent a good bit of money on eggs from a dealer in Fl with the khakis and when I finally got some to hatch, many didn't make it past a few days. I ended up with 3 pullets (go figure) and they are 8 mos old. I was about to sell them because I was not going to buy more eggs from that seller and I did not want to deal with buying a black sumatra and having to go thru several generations of breeding and hatching to get to khaki, dun and platinum. Lo and behold I found a nice lady who had only a khaki roo and no hens so she decided to let me get him. I drove 3 1/2 hours each way and picked up my rooster yesterday. He is very beautiful (6mos old) and growing a nice tail. So as of right now I have a quad of the sumatra. My girls don't seem too excited about the roo and he doesn't seem to know what they are as he was raised with silkies but I hope they settle in soon and I expect them to be laying in the spring.
