I went to our county 4H poultry show and auction last night. Our county chose to let the 4H classes raise golden sex links this year. The state vet was there and all birds received a clean bill of health and the State Judge was there and judged each group of 6 pullets per 4H member. Out of the top 10 groups 8 groups were already laying at 5 months of age. They also judged the eggs and I was super impressed with size and color. So impressed when the auction got under way I bought the grand champion group plus 4 more the same girl raised in that flock for a total of 10. I got these young pullets home last night put out some fresh water handled them a little and put them in the coop/run for the night. I had an early morning errand to run came back home gave them some laying mash and went to work. When I got home 7 out of the 10 pullets had already laid eggs. I thought that was real good considering the stress of being bathed for the show, put in a cramped wire viewing cage for hours, handled by the judge including vent examine, and blood test by vet, handled again and moved to a new location. This picture absolutely do not do these girls justice they are beautiful!! I call them the golden girls. Are all these sex links this amazing?? These are my first.
