Well after a long awaited arrival...my Young Malay arrived today all the way from QLD....

I have 6 in total, and they are young between 10 and 16 weeks old, the Silver Duck wing cockerel is about 15 weeks old and is a nice big boy...really placid and friendly, i am sooo impressed with the groups colours.

here are a few hastily taken pics at 6.30 pm this afternoon just after arrival...excuse the quality.

Nice birds Heidi, but I am a sucker for Malays 8) I find when they are young, their feet can be a good indicator of both size and potential to grow on further. If they have massive feet comparitive to their body, then they usually have a fair bit more growing to do :) Once they grow into their feet, they can fill out more sideways, but not usually for height. Some strains will stay slender (as I think yours will). They have a lot of things going for them, and are an excellent start. If you want to try and improve them, keep an eye out for some very strong headed birds, with good bone.

What 's the green stuff? Must have rained or are you irrigating? Brown still around here. Nice selection of Malays though!

Greetings to all,

Here are some of my Malay photo's. Not all of my the birds, but that will come after I get the digital camera away from Graeme! He tends to hog it!


www.mapleridgedeerhoundkennels.com
and scroll down to Mapleridge Malay's

Am in the middle of trying to organise a "Malay Club Of Australia", but with advise, I am looking at a Malay Speciality with an 'All Game Club' first, to find out the interest!!!
If a Club was to form, it needs interest from all states, but with that, we need to have a club that will address all members such as W.A, Tas, N.T etc.
Why does a Member become a Member ?

I don't really know....so can you help?

But what I do know, is that they have to get something out of their Club, otherwise it is pointless to be a member.

It's a big Australia, but it's achieveable only if we get in their and give it a go!@!!

Anyway. enough of me.... Check out my Malay's


Take Care,
Richard

Had a look at your site Richard. Looks like a good start also :) Look forward to seeing how they fill out, and progeny.

The pile youngster I posted a pic of earlier, as promised have taken a photo to show how his head filled out. He is one of my backup males (Worth having a few, as although the hens seem to live forever and as hardy as bricks, roosters don't always do so well). Would like to see him with a neater comb and more brow, but note how the eye colour changes:
