    These guys are my little 7 week old Blue Swedish. They've just gotten their juvenile plumage all settle in. They are just babies, so their bodies are still slight. They will be a lot heavier in a couple of months.

    I think I got some decent markings. Everybody has the white wing tips. You can see the white chin on one. That's acceptable, but not preferred.

    I tried to get a good photo that showed the difference in size between the Pekin and Swedish of the same age. The Pekin are over twice the size. But all of the photos looked like it might be just the perspective, so the size difference wasn't clear.

    All those little sticks they are standing on were suckers pruned off my fruit trees. I gave them to the ducks, who happily stripped off and devoured all the leafs.

    They look very nice. You have done well with the bibs and the facial white. Nice rich blue too. Lovely even bill colour. Great that you scored the white wing tips in all of them. I think the last one has the best head. The others could have a little more of a 'rise' from the top of the bill (a more rounded head). But I am just being picky.... I would be very happy if I had hatched these guys. Congratulations!

    Really looking forward to more pics as they grow up! [​IMG]
