    Its been a crazy week here and I finally found the camera today but of course, most of the birds are now molting so it'll be a bit before I get many pics. The dun hen will be done molting soon, she does have some lacing but nothing compared to blue lacing. The cockerel is a nice solid cocoa brown so far and growing like crazy.

    My Platinum boy today, you can really see the Dun color showing through in his new saddle feathers.
