@Prairie Fleur I only had one Campine but she was the total opposite of what sharol described with her Scout. She was flightier than my Leghorns even, I couldn't get within 5 feet of her or she would fly off squawking all the way. She was the first out of the run when I opened up the door, flying out over the gate. If you want calm IMO I wouldn't get that breed. Sorry sharol, I know you like them but I prefer much calmer birds as well. I only have the leghorns in my laying flock to add some white eggs.
@Dani4Hedgies I'm not totally sold on bird #2 being a pullet, it's kind of looking rooish to me. I agree with danz on #4 bird, it's not a barred rock. I don't think #11 or 13 are barred rocks either, the legs are wrong, unless they're crossed with something else. I agree with danz on #10, it looks like a cockerel to me as well & probably a golden marans. On number 8 it could be a Welsummer, the pattern is somewhat right, it would be a pullet if it is, the cockerels are totally colored differently & don't have that pattern. #9 has green legs & a tail, I vote EE on that one, I can't tell sex for sure but it's comb is pretty pink depending on age could be a cockerel. Of course the EEs can really fool you right up till they start crowing or laying, that's one of the hardest with the pea combs either on EEs or true Ameraucanas to sex till later. Anyway now you have two opinions for what it's worth.
It was such a gorgeous day out yesterday, we really enjoyed being outside. We got the boy lambs banded, much to their dismay, it was a rodeo trying to catch them, they get pretty darned fast quickly. They can run & jump quite a ways off the ground when they need to. My DH also got the last gate done at the south end of our new paddock for the sheep & goats, I was really glad to have that done. Now we have decided we need a gate between the two paddocks so he is not very happy with me because he has to put in another big wood post. I wish I had planned that when we were doing the fence but we didn't. It's always something around here it seems that needs to be done. We have one more paddock to fence yet to have all of the area fenced in so I can rotate grazing. I can't wait to have it all done but it probably won't be till the end of the year again, hopefully.
My chickens are all ramping up with laying for spring & I'm glad to see that since I have orders to fill & will need to start incubating soon. I can't wait to start seeing little chicks again.
