Well since I made everyone stop talking.
Here are my chickens
Rusty and the girls (course he has to keep them behind him, he is from the old country)
Junior (Rusty's son)
a little bit better shot of the girls
The new chicks in the brooder.
the mystery chick.
Sorry, don't know how to rotate the pictures. Took them with my IPOD so the quality isn't that great. One of these days I will remember to ask the wife where she hid the camera.
Rusty is our oldest at three years. Junior and the girls are his kids. Junior's mom was a RIR. All our others got killed when the new neighbors moved in and decided they didn't need a fence for their dogs. Took out 6 RIR and 4 EE (long story).
The fellow I got Rusty from said he is an "ameraucana" any experts out there can tell from my fuzzy picture? The girls are his kids they lay green eggs. Their moms were "sex link EE" or RIR I got from the local feed store. I think Junior's mom is RIR because his feet are yellow and the RIR had yellow feet, where as the "sex link EE" all had black feet like Rusty. Course I know little to nothing about chicken gentics... how do I do that Punnett square again.
Oh and in the brooder 26 EE (the hatchery calls them Araucanas/Americanas). With the caveat "Our Araucanas are recommended for egg laying color and ability and not for exhibition." also the 1 mystery chick.
Thats my story and I'm sticking to it.
