Any pics help learn as people who know a certain breed will point out their traits, and then we all benefit from that knowledge.
I have GOT To get motivated for DS B~day 'take two" Coffee isn't doing it, Chad you got any extra OJ??
Thanks Blarney, not my whole flock... a few more that I didn't picture, a gold comet type hen, a white silkie who is our broody of the moment, another rooster (who actually is headed to freezer camp this weekend, he is getting way too aggressive with the hens and doesn't have the size or people personality we want to breed into the flock) another few hens who are all mixed also. 15 total. Of our 11 hens we have 6 brown egg layers, of various shades... and 5 who lay various shades of greenish blue.
Color wise Pidgy is my favorite also, she is friendly for a bird who was never handled till adulthood, wish we'd of had her as a chick! Phyllis, the blue? hen is my next for color... but for personality wise Buffy (the gold comet type) and Spock (pictured on the thread) are far and above chatty little forward hens, very friendly and look to be picked up and given attention. Is really something to watch the personality differences.
