It wouldn't have been pushy to inquire! ;)
I am being picky about the boys I get now. I have to be now that Byron is leaving in a month. He's my best typed boy and I haven't bred a son to replace him yet. Junior is nice, but not nearly as nice as his dad.
Dewey and I cleaned coops and rearranged again today. So, picture time! These are most of my birds - just missing the LF Orp pen, Cee and his 2 girls (MFCs) and the waterfowl.
Black pen, including the pair from Jamie Matts (who are both still sick!)
Other black/blue pen, mixture of lines. The rooster was being a dumbarse and was in my arms as I took pics. The one girl is kind of missing most of her back feathers. I think the other black is a dominant female and may have been trying to be a rooster with her. There hasn't been a roo in with them in months.
Chocolates got a whole 6x8 shed all to themselves now. Well, the MFCs are only temporarily housed in there until tomorrow.
^ MFCs - Millie on left, Mildred on right ^
Junior and his girls. I only added Bridgette to the mix, otherwise, same girls.
^ Bridgette, 2nd floor, was Byron's favorite. Can you tell? ^
^ Poor Parti girl has no cushion left from breeding ^
Byron and his daughters (mostly Bridgette's daughter's, too - the calico is Millies)! And Chippy (OEGB). And Hot Pants (culled) and Smutty Buff's daughter, Mocha. I think I have a slight... major infatuation with Byron. He's such a mean, nasty, foot attacking SOB, but my gosh he's gorgeous!

... Hehehe. They don't know I got this one. Devon, Makenzie and Mocha.
