    My 3 white runners, Ping, Pong and Paddle are now nearly 12 weeks old. They look full grown but are still a bit "puffy". Their pen and the yard look like someone had a pillow fight.
    I was hoping to enter 1 of the drakes in the fair, September18. Do you think he'll be ready by then?

    My Khaki Campbells and Welsh Harlequins are 16 weeks now, and still have not quite finished their first molt.
