Just thought I would show of some of my birdies. I love them, most of them have names and all of them have personalities. We're going to have to get rid of a number of them before the winter, which is hard, but we have over 60 and we just don't have the money or room to feed that many without any forage available.
Thanks for looking at my flock!
Wild Thing, a McMurray hen, she has beautiful patterning on her feathers.
The trio, Adrian the red rooster, Enterprise the Easter Egger mix, and Precious their little sibling silkie. The trio are from our own flock but had a difficult hatch when I removed them from their mother so she would adopt some other chicks. They are thriving now, however.
From left to right, Vick (silver penciled rock), Shere Khan (partridge rock), and Blue (columbian wyandotte)
Liberty, who is in the molt and lost her tail because of that. She is a plymouth rock and one of my oldest hens in the flock. The other hen in the picture is young Andi, a black Andalusian
My sebright trio, so full of personality and already willing to try to fight with adult roosters. Two are boys, Spock and Linneaus, and the girl is Diamond (she has a slight crooked beak and we might not use her for breeding). Spock is the leader of the trio and already crowing. They already leave their mother's side and go off on their own, thinking so very highly of themselves.
Dove, one of my "Dalmatian" mixes. She is a beautiful girl, glowing white with just one lavender spot on her wing.
My Speckled Sussex, Captain, who is just getting her tipped feathers finally. She is nearing laying age, but still just a curious young pullet
Princess with one of her newest silkie chick (one with the crest) and an older one from another hens batch (without crest). Crested chick is Possibility and the other is Tad.
Blue's crooked beak. She is a healthy girl though, I love her
Azul (Ozzie) my blue silkie who is a sweet-roo towards other silkies but bullied by other chickens
Dastan, one of my "Dalmatians" thinking highly of himself
Eowyn, a mix hen that may have New Hampshire or may have Buff Orpington in her
Nascar, our Brown Leghorn that will run all around the yard like a crazy chicken, in all sorts of crazy circles when worried
My flock out foraging around our barns
Ruby (formerly Rudy) one of our Dalmatian mixes
Chance, my black cochin, with my molting Barred Rock rooster (Dominator)
Beauty, the sebright, with her son that is two times her size, Buddy
Scarlet, a Blue-laced Red Wyandotte
Susie (Black-eyed Susan) one of my "pure" Dalmatians and one of the four original dalmatians ever created
Long-legs, my silver-laced Cochin rooster, with green shine on his wings and a tail yet to grow in yet
Dodie (after the author of 101 Dalmatians) one of my Dalmatians with a single comb instead of the typical rose/walnut
Our newly cleaned roost room as the chickens make their way in
One of my Red Stars
Eagle (our EE) had a daughter with a Buff Orpington. Her name is Baby Cake's and she is a pretty girl
Leghorn mix hen (I sort of forget her name)
Acorn, my sweet little OEGB (Silver duckwing) who lost his comb to frost-bite
Two of my four OEGB/Sebright mixes: Dusk is the oldest, the boss of the group. The others are Dawn, Twilight and Eve
Eowyen with the Dalmatian mixes
