The other hen from our original trio

The other hen from our original trio, she was bigger and darker than Blondie and disappeared when about 14 months old in summer 2009.  At the time I figured she was the better marked of the too and was wider.  We had the trio together and got 2 pullets in 2009.

At about 4 months old - still has the barring on her bloomers

Re: The other hen from our original trio

It is interesting how much variation we are seeing come from these birds isn't it. It is actually really nice to see pictures of the originals because I would assume they are close to the breed standard.

Was speckled Jim the rooster you got along with the original trio Claire?

Re: The other hen from our original trio

Yep.  I'll do a 0 to 3 year thread on him too.  He was always pale, we though he was female in the beginning.  And he got friendly around the 2-3 month mark , later than the Gorria roo and Blondie and Gingernut the Gorria pullet.  I found a pic at 4 months and he looks pretty good and as I remembered the 6 month pic he had the white sickles in the tail.  I have thousand of photos still to go through anyway! :banginghead:  The early 2008 ones were a not great camera but it all helps.  I though it would be interesting to show how they have changed and developed over the years.  Might make it easier to spot promising birds.  It's all a good record anyway!  I have quite a few pics of the two daughters from this trio too I'll post.
