Funny how the “early” bred youngsters seem to mature quicker than latebreds. Whether that is because, even with your early ones hatching on the 11th December, by the time they were weaned the days are already starting to get longer. Where as latebreds hatched late summer have the shortening of days first. Just a thought.
