Here's one of my girls, Carmen. You've gotta love those cheek poofs. She's gorgeous, I hope she doesn't change much with her first moult. Her feathers on her chest are so cool, she looks like she's wearing a tweed vest.



Help I can't see past my cheeks!


Pippin and Sadie (behind her) were all up in my face when I was trying to take onion pics. LOL



My handsome roo trying to feed the girls falling leaves.

And crowing here, Wyatt (my 2 yr old ds) has starting doing this singing/screaming high pitched noise and Fred does NOT like it one bit! His crow sure has changed since I shared his baby crow. First baby crows HERE

crow at :27 into video.
She is gorgeous!

How long before I can count on them being regular layers?

And will they always lay in the afternoon evening if that's what they are doing now?

Becky. I posted a great link a cpl days back. She decribed that a hen normally ovulated every 23 hrs, so an hour later every day. I think she said when they are laying in the afternoons, they will reset and start over.

Thx.

Give her time becky, they skip often the first few weeks and then it's smooth sailing. My RiR's haven't taken a day off in probably a month!
