    Why are their combs so huge? They are only 7 months old. Is it because they are hatchery birds?
    Oh and why oh why do they look so mean [​IMG]

    Out of all of my chickens, the SLW's feathers are the softest, they feel like satin. [​IMG]

    They have rose combs and some are different sizes. Mine has a HUGE comb and he's just about 19 weeks old in this pic:

    Quote:I really have one amazing dog. When I got her, I only had one chicken. She really made friends with that lone hen. Then in the spring, I got chicks and made sure she knew the chicks were mine. Now I can leave her all day with the chickens, and she is great with them.
