Stunning birds Sandra
I prefere the Gold Duckwing Cockerel of yours but as for the hens your Partridge hens are excellent.
What are they like for laying as mine used to lay about 4 eggs a week.

I've had to wait for my Welsummers to moult through and gain a little bit of colour before posting pictures of my birds. Unfortunately, my photography skills are no where near as good as Sandrars.
