    Blue Eggs!

    We bought two new birds on October 3rd, 2013!
    Lady Polly Pouf ~and~ Eileen Daisy Eagle
    Crested -and- Non-crested Legbars from New Hampshire!

    Aren't they darling? I love the "wild/camouflage" coloring.
    After much research and hunting all over the state and beyond for pullets,
    (Not an easy task when looking for a select few breeds -
    my interest was in Welsummers, Barnevelders, & Legbars -
    -but at this point we aren't too keen on the idea of super dark or speckled eggs, so Legbars were the preferred choice!
    A newer/rare-ish type, I feel lucky to have them delivered.)
    I found some babies instead - a better age for getting used to us handling them. [​IMG]


    Below is a photo of them in my lap. I put a brown towel down, and they were dustbathing in it as if it was a patch of dirt!

    1st visit to our backyard:
    "That's not Momma!!?!"

    Penny calmly and without a word preened herself for 20 minutes next to them while they dustbathed.

    So far, so good! We'll see how it goes - we're not letting them have sleepovers just yet....

    October 18th/19th/20th

    Peacefully lounging under the burning bush together.
    1st night, bottom bar - 2nd night, middle bar ....

    3rd night ... all together!
    Sharing the food & water dishes ^.^



    I'm falling hard for this little girl - Polly is super sweet and a snuggler too! [​IMG]

    We loved you so much girl & were going to keep you forever - I wish it was later rather than sooner [​IMG]...
