    So what do you all think? I am thinking I might be able to show these but I don't know as I have never had any before.

    Rooster. the white colour on his back is more of a cream. I don't know why it looks so white in the picture.

    They are only about 20 weeks old, so they still have a bit of changing to do.

    [​IMG] Hi Teale!

    I don't really know much about the SLW, except that they are just beautiful birds! Are these some that you hatched?

    Do you have a , "Standard of Perfection," in Australia? If so, maybe it would have a picture???

    Beautiful birds, for sure!

    wow that was fast [​IMG] .
    yes I hatched these ones. they are from the last hatch that I did. when these ones and the Light Sussex start laying I am hoping to fill the bator, yipee [​IMG] I can't wait. right now I don't really have anything worth hatching.
    I didn't think of looking them up. I'll do that now and tell you what I find.

    I love them too.
    The roosters are so funny, one is a bit mean and pecks me when I try and touck it but the other is so scared all the time and the few times I have picked it up it always does this big runny poo all over me [​IMG] His plan works, I don't pick him up anymore [​IMG] .

    Yes, finally got them .... just this month in fact.

    I can't remember, but I think they started laying at about 6 months old. I really do love the Light Sussex, too.
