Glad to hear Marama is back! Tis' still the season for molting... Between the feather storms and naked chickens, I always worry my neighbors think I'm running a slaughterhouse in my yard... My girls are also light on the egg production right now... One stops laying, and all the other lazy buggers feel like they don't have to lay either. Grr.
Can't wait to see your lovely pictures!
Ugh, sorry to hear it!
This is the first weekend in a while without homework, and, well, looks like it'll be the last one for a while. School stinks sometimes.
If you don't mind me asking, what are you studying?
Well, as promised, I did get pictures!
Actually, I got ahead of myself and took pictures yesterday, which is a good thing because today is an ugly, gray, rainy day!
So, pictures from yesterday! And I have a lot of them!
I tried to aim for the gals I don't get pictures of as often, and quickly realized why
I don't often get pictures of them. Bunch'a uncooperative divas, they are!
Granted, a lot of them are in, err... less than top shape due to the molt.
I did what I could, anyway.
Miss Fancy Pants, finally looking radiant after her molt!
Ihi the crazy Campine. I had to grab her OUT OF THE ROAD yesterday!
But I'm not sure if I can blame her... I mean, there really isn't much going on up there, as you can see... "Derp?"
Debra Jo is the last of the Barred Rocks to go into molt. She is disgruntled with the process.
...And then Poppy came in to take over.
"Look at me! Love
Now that Ani is coming out of molt, the other two Wyandottes are not looking their best. The Lady Wyandotte, giving up at last on her attempt to avoid me:
And here is Raven, the most refined of the Wyandottes, giving me looks for taking her picture when she's in such a state!
Miss Mako is the single most difficult bird in my flock to get a good picture of! I must have taken dozens of pictures of her before getting this one!
Tiwhiri is in a sad state, and she's high tailing it!
Marama's of the same mindset--she's goin' that way!
Merlin actually posed! Doesn't she look lovely?
"Who you callin' lovely?!"
Poor, meek Rangi.
This picture turned out so nice, though!
Rangi actually got on my lap yesterday! That's so unlike her!! This was the only picture I got, though, before she changed her mind on the idea! (P.S. She's not molting yet, she just likes to let the other hens pull her butt feathers out.
Aaaand Rosie, who decided that the big pile of dirty nest boxes (that I'm totally not
putting off cleaning) was the best place to pose. Sigh.
I still have a bunch more pictures, but I have to run out and close the coops for the night. Will post the rest of them ASAP!
