    Took some pictures of my SLWs that are in the same grow pen as my orps. As soon as it cools down most of them in this pen will be moved to the "big girl with roo" pens.

    Thanks. Where the orps don't seem wild about having their picture taken my SLWs are happy to cooperate.

    Very very beautiful birds!! My SLW, Oreo, is also very photogenic, although her poor tail feathers are gone now! [​IMG]

    Katy and other Silver folks. I have some pretty nice looking silvers growing out as well. I get frustrated posting pics so will try to ask my question without doing that. I have some of the females that have nice lacing,but appears to be heavier so the entire bird has a much darker look. The others will have a thinner line for the lacing, resulting in a bird that has an over whiter look. In both cases the lacing seems complete just one heavier. Which is considered most desirable.

    I have one very typey female that is quite light in terms of over all color, maybe not as striking as some others. I know "go take some pictures" I am lazy

    Nice Birds Katy

    Are those breeder stock or hatchery stock?
