With the cold spell we recently had, my chickens were very happy to get some "grazing" time. They were pretty miffed when it was time to coop up, but I told them to give it up, I don't give a cluck.
This is Domino the Mottled Houdan. When a camera comes out, he is right in front of it.
Bandit is an EE cockerel that came as my Free Exotic Chick From McMurray Hatchery last Summer. I love his personality, though he doesn't really like to be touched. He is very protective of the girls and tries to keep the order.
Domino again. If he could make a duck face, I bet he would.
Labelle is a Golden Laced Polish. I think she was a cartoon in her previous life. She'll run around frantically in circles and run into things.
Skye, here, is a blue copper maran. She loves her dirt baths. Bandit decided to join her a few minutes later.
Poof, the silkie. She came from a local breeder, and she is so prissy and dainty. She hates getting her feet too dirty.
Half-Pint is the Mottled Houdan Pullet. She is the most social, and she'll come up and peck me until I pick her up and pet her.
This is a little cockerel mix. I have never seen coloring in a rooster like him before, and I think I'm going to keep him.
Bandit is keeping order in the coop. "Don't get too rowdy, young-ons"
"Well, my job is done here."
Buff Laced Polish is pouting because she's not allowed out of the coop. Little butt won't stay close to the coop, so she's grounded.
The "Young-ons." Left to right is a RIR mix cockerel (Red), Olive Egger (Blue), RIR mix cockerel (Ash), and another OE (Splash) on the right. The black cockerel in the box is also a RIR mix. The RIR mixes were bought as straight run, but I ended up with all cockerels. Yay me!
What is going on? Stew (RIR mix cockerel) is fascinated by the red light on the camera.
Red, Blue, Ash, Penguin, and Stew.
Joan, the Columbian Wyandotte, is gossiping about Bandit, the EE, to Half-Pint, the Mottled Houdan)
Labelle (Golden Laced Polish) and Elisabeth (Columbian Wyandotte) gabbing away with one another.
