Contestants are at 8 weeks now and wow have they changed!
Here are 1 and 2 the olive eggers. The brown looking more copper maran and the black more ameraucana? The black one is developing a muff. Brown has yellow legs, black does not have feathered feet. I'm confused about the legs.
3 and 4 the speckled sussex. Clearly a roo here.
5, 6, and 7 the lavender orpingtons. One clearly roo, 1 clearly hen and 1 can't make up it's mind.
This lavender has the body size of the roo but lacks comb/wattle development. Maybe my hen is just small.
8 the svarthona. Smallest of them all.
9 and 10 the crevecoeurs. Major development in the comb/wattles last week. Prior to that only difference was the roo had a longer tail.
11 BLR wyandotte. Butt has maximum fluffiness.
12 Houdan. I have no idea how this one can see.
13 and 14 the Russian orloff. Noticable feathering differences. Is this an indication with this breed?
15 and 16 buff orpington. The roo is a giant. Legs like tree trunks. Biggest of my flock.
