These little cuties have all their wing feathers and are just getting their feathers on the shoulders, chest and now the neck. The tail feathers are two centimetres long now. Their crests or combs on the top of the head have red colouring coming into them.
I find it amazing that one day the chickens have yellow combs and the next day you can see the red coming and its happening to all the chickens at the one time. nature is amazing.
The most forward of these little beauties is starting to get wattles. Those are the red bits that hang down under their chin. Eventually they will be long and bright red on the roosters and shorter and red on the hens.
The red is also forming around their eyes.
The young roosters are for sale if anyone is close enough to Torquay, Victoria, Australia. This breed is not common and can be hard to find, especially in a bantam. Contact me if you are interested.
I also have for sale some purebred bantam Rhode Island Red roosters. These are lovely young birds with black eyes and chocolatey brown feathers. Beautiful birds.
