Not all feather-footed breeds have the same amount of feathers. For example, Marans can have feathered feet but never enough for it to present any problems at all, but look up Bredas or Sultans to see an extreme example. It can really inhibit their ability to walk with enough feathers on their feet.
I will give those a look...Thank you for the insight!! I am not interested in birds with an over abundance of foot-feathers...
wow..weird...is that stuff on the left the "shell" or the egg-whites?....I am sorry I can't be of any help...
One of the few pumpkins I grew this year was, unfortunately rotting from the top down..so..it made for an unexpected treat for the girls...the enjoyed it immensely!
It works out well right now, it will only help the "worming" process along...naturally.
the "babies"...their legs have feathers, but only a few.
Chikadee..well, she likes her picture taken....she is molting around her neck..she has a seriously crazy look!! She does not have leg feathering..she was one of Chads project eggs. This girls will lay 6 eggs a week, well..she was....
Ginger & Cordon doing the "sort-of" mother thing...
Still no eggs from either of them, hoping they get with the program soon!
Henbree..the latest to go on the broody train...I had closed up the coop & let them all out in the run, so she didn't have to spend all day in "broody-jail"... No eggs today..what a bummer! I know they would be on "withhold", but still....
Atilla..has definitely had her share of the pumpkin!!
Very cool! Now if I have some questions..i will know who to ask!
Oh yeah..I used to get this candy at a store,(in Lititz)....Absinthe..tasted awesome!! Like black licorice..Never got to try the beverage though, always wanted too
I am just starting out..just with the plants I have right now are mostly common herbs, a few perennials...there is a lot to learn and understand. Some of these plants are like mushrooms..they can look very similar, but have different effects..some not so good! Just going with the easy stuff now, getting familiar with them, then i will take one new plant at a time.
Sadly, her chicks have almost no chance of looking like their mom. That is an unfortunate downside of the otherwise beautiful mixed breeds. They could prove to be an inspiration for a devoted geneticist to try to replicate their coloring, but that is all, they are the end of the line for their particular phenotype.
Maybe someday we will have Star Trek style tricorders we can point at a bird and it will report their exact genetic makup, then it could be replicated, either by careful breeding, or with one of them Star Trek replicators . . .
This is a very pretty mixed breed roo that runs around the farm. I love all the colors, I don't think there is any established breed that looks like that.
Another example of how it would be nice to perpetuate that look, but it's nearly impossible.
Yesterday a co-worker asked me: Why do chicken coops always have 2 doors?
Because if they had 4 doors they would be chicken sedans . . .
