What pretty pullets! they make a lovely group.
Their combs will need to grow a lot bigger and redder before they're ready to lay, though.

Yes, I'm not sure whether they are really 20 weeks.

What lovely girls, we had 3 just like this, only the Light Sussex is left now Dizzie Izzie, in her younger days she tried on many occasions to make friends with the Bluebell who was a year older and got beaten up on a regular basis, strangely in later years they became inseparable. She tried to fly through a fence, oops, tried dust bathing in mud, not a good look and chased a Canada Goose into the lake, and also had a prolapse. In spite of this she is now a very stately serene matriarch of 5 1/2. The Bluebell having died very peacefully aged 6 1/2. Our barred Rocks were very peaceful girls and fantastic layers.
Hope yours are as entertaining as ours

You have a hen called Izzie, too! Izzie is my Bluebell, Skye is the Sussex and the Marans is Morag. They appear to get on very well and go around together, no squabbles witnessed to date. I love the way they come running up when they see me. Cupboard love, I know, but it's fun.

We live in the South Lochs area of the Isle of Lewis. The loch we overlook is the sea loch, Loch Erisort. It looks much better with a bit of sun. :)
