The "Morons" are growing!

Our French White Maran chicks (the Morons as Nigel calls them) are growing really quickly.  They are going on 6 weeks and are looking a bit scruffy at the moment because they are getting their adult feathers but are still a bit patchy yet.  From the size of their combs we reckon we have 5 females and 4 males which is quite a good result.  I think they are going to be beautiful birds with their fluffy trousers and pure white colouring.  Their due date for starting to lay eggs is mid December but because of shorter daylight hours its possible they may not start till early spring, so by next summer we will be into full production of French White Marans for the freezer - yummy!
