What a difference a week makes!!
The boys are feathering in nicely where they were missing all those feathers and the girls have that nice metalic green sheen to them now!!
They realy do not look like the same ragidy birds we acquired a week ago!!
I knew that better living conditions would help them I did not know we would see a drastic difference in such a short time though!!
OK I have a couple quick pics but will try to get better ones this weekend!
OK Cockerell #1 and the big Pullet seem to have paired off,
He has the reddest and biggest comb,
You can see the fuzz where there was bare skin just a short week ago and "I may be seeing thinge here but" it appears hie comb color is getting more vibrant where both looked more of a washed out pink and his waddles are definatly bigger??
Big girl, She is the more out going of the two and has taken a liking to the more vibrant male with the nicer comb, we will see how this works out as things progress but we are thinking of keeping these two as a pair Since they seem the healthiest and strongest of the four!
She also has the most points on her comb, it lookid like 8 points and the Cockerel has 7 "Hard to see the back point in these pics, not sure if that matters or not"
Cockerel #2, he is smaller slightly and has more of a pink comb but his points are almost straight up where the others are off kilter.
He is the shyer one and will only approach us if the other has come up 1st.
You can see he too has fuzz in place of the bald patches of just 6 days prior!!
Finaly the little shy pullet, she will hide from us and only come out when she thinks the others have treats!
Her and the shy Cockerel spend more time together but i am unsure if it is just by default because they both like to keep away from everyone or if they are actualy keeping each other company??
This is the only pic of her that was not a blurr or just a tail shot! She is by far the fastest bird we have and hope she never ever gets out or she will be gone forever!!
She is also the flier!! she will fly back and forth from perch to perch and excercise her wings often!!
Well I hope you like them and can see the amount of improvement we do, in such a short time, We are quite pleased and if they keep this up they will be in perfect shape in no time!!!
