I noticed jose most of the cockerals are moulting to the red laced colour, some with black hackles and some with that blueish look, the barring on the flights looks like it might moult out, same as for the pullets some of which look to be getting the breast lacing to now, have quite a few very similar. Maybe the barring on the wings is just the juvenile wheaton pattern :hmmm: . Looks like pierre over dlg barnies is throwing red laced young. The other young white /wheaton pullets are from the buff cross marans hen, pretty too but will have to be re homed as way to many.

Great to see your young are going well too jose. Pierre has gone to the wifes niece farm to live. He was crowing way to much and they wanted to use him as their roo was very old. Iam going to keep a few pullets and move most of the others on. Have way to many chooks and dont have enough space to have to many types of chooks. Will be concentrating on blr wyandottes, have 3 standards growing now as well as the bantams. My favourites :thumbs: .
With the marans i hatched they are super friendly chicks , but all mixed colours and leg colours .maybe in the future i might get a pure stain marans if i tire of the blr wyandottes. Also am keeping some blue and splash silikes as like them.

Still have some jose :biggrin: , kept 3 nice pullets, still 2 boys to part with. Back from auction,cockerals sold real cheap at $1 each, but some pullets managed to bring $32 each. My problem i dont have the pen space for to many breeds, will keep your wonderful offer in mind if i tire from the blr wyandottes. :thumbs: . Just have 1 late hatch going now blr bantam wyandottes, only 6 eggs were fertile, 1 out of egg now. Eb/ ewh down..
The cockerals cross marans were eating me out of home, man they could put away the tucker :shock: .
