Some pics of this seasons Standard pullets.

A fox took all of my Ara hens last year (my fault) - luckily I already had some chicks and a couple of males.

Looking good Sue55. I like your rooster - and the grass in your photo pens. I have one pullet the identical (?splash) colour of your third shot - but with a few feathers on the feet, an unplanned jump-the-fence mishap from an Araucana/Pekin cross lad. She's a lovely bird "aside from that" and just started laying yesterday. So - two very white eggs. Not happy Jan.

Haha - you can't beat a strip of Astro Turf on top of a sin bin.
The splash is going to be a show girl this weekend - still waiting for this lot to start laying.

Need a like button - (but not at the cost of upgrading the forum and crashing the whole thing).

Had a good ((cold) day. The splash pullet took Best of Breed with a little competition, and it was good to make contact with another Ara breeder.
No competition for the Croads or Barnies so they were carded (ranked) but no feedback from the judge.
