They are'n laying yet.I have had mine for maybe 10 days-but my dtr has my camera.Thanks for posting a pic.My roo is dark- nearly mahogany.He isn't even dancing yet.But yours has a better crest Frank- maybe yours are older?Mine are still in quaranitne and I am terrible at judging size if htey aren't side by side. I wanoder if I will get to baby sit these little ones????

    Yes we have our start in them. Between Frank and Karen there are 13 here in upstate SC. We hope to get them going here and spread them around. Frank and Karen are great multipliers so it won't be too long. Thanks for posting the pictures Frank.
