Mine are all doing fine, and like your young ones, at least one of mine has started laying. She's not even a year old yet, and already as big as the adult hens. Big, beautiful Cochin hen. Tried to get some pictures of her, but since she's black she doesn't show up well.
Had a Rhodey hen who was under the weather for a couple of days, but I attributed that to the moult. It was really hard on the adult girls, and it took awhile for them to bounce back. The coop looked like a whole flock of chickens had been slaughtered in it with all the feathers flying around.
My fall pictures aren't as lovely as yours, but everyone's happy, healthy and FAT!
