We are lucky to have grassy chicken runs in the spring time around here, it never lasts all year…such a different landscape.
Why do you say your rooster has sun damage to his color?
Your nesting hen has nice wide tail feathers. Would you say she looks gold?
Her pullet offspring all look cream from these pics, and have nice variations on the crest colors. It's nice to see the dark color stay in the crest and not go down into the hackles, like mine tend to. It really makes the crest stand out.
In the first of the pullet pics, would you say the pullet with a dark crest also has a darker shade to her body color as well? Or is that just an illusion because the pullets are standing in a different orientation?
