I have to ask...

Forgive me if I ask silly questions...

I have 5 beautiful week old babies... Is there anything I should be watching for right away as in breed standard? And what is side spring? I've read so much about it but can't find anything with pictures or a good good discription... I'm sure I missed it somewhere....

Re: I have to ask...

Do a google image search of  'side sprig on single comb'  you'll see lots of examples.

As for your five, they will go through several sets of feathers before maturity, so don't sweat it, just enjoy them. It wouldn't hurt to note who hustles the most and grows the fastest (vigor and thrift) who lays first and at how many weeks.

:congrats:

Yes they are like little Camelions, they change several times before maturity.    As Maggiesdad said just enjoy and watch them :thumbsup:

Re: I have to ask...

Thank you so much for the giggle citygirlnomote. Side spring indeed :eat:

The only way to learn is to ask. Never be embarrassed as I'm pretty sure no one on this earth was born knowing everything.

I'll find you a link to some pictures we have on here as well..
