This little bugger is Ree, the one is suspect might be a Roo.
Pom Pom, I think this one is a pullet.
I agree with Percheron chick. The first one looks like a cream brabanter. They are pretty birds.
Thanks for the heads up on the rain as there are a ton of chores waiting on me. Just wishing I had a day off before the weekend. I have half a pick up load of compost to wheel to the back yard since I need the truck for other things this weekend. Mother Nature always messing with the plans lol.
madileana, Glad that handsome pup is good with the gals. Bummer bout the coons getting the birds. I put hasp latches on the coops here and keep a padlock on them to keep the nasty critters out. (This includes someone stealing eggs from our yard the last couple years.) Humans have been my greatest threat but we have coons here in Loveland too.
COChix, They are growing like weeds! Looking quite happy too.
Uzi, You have a lot going on! I do not know how you keep it all straight. I would be a mess trying to remember when I started which egg. I hope they all hatch for you.
I know I am missing responding to several posts. Been busy around here too.
The ladies made a mess out of the back yard last fall and I did not get it fixed all up yet. Please forgive the mess in the pic as well..... life happens here a lot.
I had to share one of the new garden beds.
I am rather tired of mowing so am going all gardens in the back yard. (I know I know..... the yard is a mess.) The mulch path was decimated by the chickens last fall and I never got round to fixing it as I plan to do a stone path there when we do the stone patio. Lots to do but progress being made.
