    Our Black Sumatra, Bali, enjoying some time in the sun. Boy, is she ever a talker! There are times I think my ear is just about ready to fall off from her endless chatting. [​IMG]
    Scarlett, Partridge Rock, and feisty redhead. Don't ever think of getting anywhere near her during roosting time, because she'll just about take your arm off!
    Ava the EE perching on a stall in one of the barns. Who knew that a member of that breed could grow into such a huge hen! Good thing she's extremely sweet and docile, right?
    Cream Legbar, name of Arlene. Although not friendly in the slightest, this girl DOES provide us with a ridiculous amount of beautiful blue eggs.
    Seneca, SIlver Laced Wyandotte, layer of amazingly dark, speckled eggs.
    Addy the Black Australorp letting the sunshine bring out her stunning green sheen. What a pretty girl!
    Of course, Enya is ALWAYS beautiful, which is something that will forever be fact. [​IMG] We're pretty sure she's a Barnevelder/Welsummer cross.

    Of course, that's not all we have in our flock, but it would take a horrendously long chicken page to cover them all! [​IMG]

    Thanks, everyone! :)
    @KayTee , we aren't absolutely sure, since Enya COULD feasibly be a Partridge Rock. However, we ordered a Barnevelder and she's what we got. While she possesses quite a few of the breed's attributes, her lacing/penciling is definitely nowhere near what it should have been had she been pure Barnevelder. I must agree that she is an absolute beauty, whatever she might be!
    At Meyer Hatchery, Sumatras are $4-something, so certainly very affordable if you want an exotic black bird! :)
