Getting closer to blues!
I lost my couple little blue juveniles due to a respiratory illness.
They just never grew and faded away.
Everyone else in that pen recovered well.
But, I have 5 nice black hens, and will be putting them with this guy once he finishes quarantine for blue babies
His beard and muffs are actually growing back in now, the ladies groomed it out of him.
i was worried, but see the little stubbles coming in, so I'm happy.
His legs are darker than they look, not quite slate, but pretty close.
I will be picky with the babies, and only keep the ones with slate legs.
My australorps plucked my boy Einstein, he was so pretty! A long talk is needed for the girls doing the plucking 😂
