    This little sweetie is about 6 or 7 weeks old. Any ideas on what color this is and what it will look like later on? They are starting to get some reddish/buff mixed in on them. Here are pictures from different stages of growth. Thank you!

    Did you hatch them yourself? If so, I have some Lemon Blues growing at that color!

    Quote:No, I did not hatch them myself. I bought them as babies. I am crossing my fingers that I have a pair, though, so I can hatch some in the near future! I love these guys. They are so sweet and pretty. I hatched some RIR's that are about the same age and they are about the same size as these. Can't wait to see how big they will get!? Are yours standards? How big do they get? Thanks!

    It looks like a buff/blue cross. But it would be a wonderful start to a lemon blue project. Luck you. gr. lol

    Ok I tried to get some more pictures of the two of these. Can you tell the gender of them by these pictures?

    Looks like you have 2 girls! I have babies about the same age and the Roo's are very noticeable by now!

    They are LOVELY! Please keep us posted on how they feather out!
