Nala has a nice clean neck and Noel looks like she's going to be laced. It's so much fun to see how these birds feather out.
Thanks for sharing. Can't wait until next weeks photo shoot!
QUESTION for everyone. Has anyone lost a LF NN to a hawk?
Thank you, they are just hatchery birds from MM. I have one NN in my original flock that was given to my son by a guy in Colorado who had several NN hybrids. We named her Nancy and we all just fell in love with her. She has the sweetest disposition. Sadly, she is pretty low on the totem pole and often spends more time kind of on the periphery of the flock than right in the middle with the rest of the girls. So when I ordered chicks I ordered 5 more, so she would have some "birds of a feather" companionship. They sent me 6 and I am happy with them. They were labeled as all pullets, I am hoping so. However the dark coloring coming out on Nakita has me a bit worried. All the pictures I have seen of chicks that way turn out to be roos. Any thoughts on that? I will keep sharing pictures too, as I am somewhat of a lover of photography and just can't help snapping pictures of them.
And to answer your question regarding a hawk. NO. I have not lost any of my girls to a hawk or eagle. But I did have a little hawk find his way into my coop last fall.
He had to have come through the pophole door. He was just scared and freaked out....the chickens (all LF and full grown were not the least bit concerned by him).
