Three Months On

Portraits of the five that have reached adolescence - two elegantly bouffanted Cream Legbars, one Rhode Island Red Soup Rooster, one Barnevelder and one Buff Orpington. They have outgrown their cradle and their three big ugly stepsisters still won't let them roost in the loft so they are sleeping in the nest boxes for now. Click to enlarge.

wow -how they've grown. I hope Henry can't read. Gertrude and Alice are really getting with the bouffant now.
Are they that much smaller than the stepsisters?

They are about the size of bantams now, but bottom of the pecking order.
