You've got bold hawks, MacGuyver :-O I can't imagine them getting *that close.
HannahWren, that's the most beautiful coop!
For the record I do size pics way down to thumbnails when replying to a post. Although it's probably been a waste of time. Anyway, as my husband says, let's "let it goooooo!"
I think I should at least get credit for not posting a picture while the babies were still in the incubator. This time at least I waited til I pulled them out. Although the white Araucana is damp. There's still 2 pipped eggs that are working their way out, I hope they make it. Another thing I was going to mention-2 of these babies (& 1 remaining pipped egg) zipped out from the small end of the egg. Hatched just fine all on their own but the wrong end.
Anyone know if the 3 dark ones blue or black? I'd be thrilled with either. I can't believe I got a white one, too.
The 2nd pic is the Brown Red and the White Bantam Ameraucana. They're so big already, look at all their wing feathers and they've even got tail feathers-at only 1 week.
Then the 4x6x6 tall frame my daughter and I (mostly her) made yesterday. I think I'll do them this way from now on. I'm going to 'side' it with 6" wide pickets and cover it with roof panels. It's heavy, it's in one of the new 50x50 yards we build around a group of trees. My 4 Dark Brahma girls and 3 Lavender Ameraucanas are going there.
