Point of lay
The hen in the above photo is one of the chicks we hatched in March. They are cream legbars and the four we kept are all in good shape. The cockerel is the most developed but the hen in the photo is coming along well. Her comb and wattles are developing well, a sure sign that she is approaching maturity and will soon be starting to lay. I'm rather looking forward to that.
