My Crowing Beautiful Chickens

  1. Rhodebar Lover
    Henny Penny my Black-Copper Marans cross. She is one of my favorites because she rules "her" flock with an iron fist, bossing around even the largest roosters. She is also my oldest chicken at the age of three.

    Pheasant my Easter Egger from Townline. She is probably second in command and is two years old. Sadly she is my least friendly chicken.

    Hawk another easter Egger from Townline. She is fairly bossy and is also two.

    Peepers is yet another Easter Egger from Townline. She is very talkative, and when you say " Hi Peepers!" she will reply by cooing. Like both her sisters she is two.

    Strawberry an Australorp from Townline. She always is ready to complain about something as soon as you walk into the coop. All of my Australorps are two as well.

    Scruffy another Australorp from my Townline batch. When she was little she was very scrappy looking, hence her name. She is my largest Australorp.

    Gizmo my final Australorp from Townline. She is the least standard looking Australorp because she has a discolored toenail and has quite a few white tipped feathers. Like the others she is two.

    My Rhodebar rooster Rusty is one of my two roosters I picked to keep out of nine others. He is the boss roo and is protective yet gentle to his hens and is perfect around people, never showing any aggression. He is a year old.

    My other rooster a Golden Cukoo Marans. He was my other great rooster out of the batch. He doesn't exactly have an official name because I have always affectionately called him Cukoo Marans. He is overly friendly and as soon as I walk out the back door he runs out of the coop (which is quite far from our house) and up a steep hill to stand beside you. He is also a year old.

    My Gold Laced Brahma Cheetah, well she's supposed to be. When we ordered chicks from a breeder in Kentucky she came as a substitute for a Buff Laced Brahma, but since this is a new and not completly perfected variety, she turned out to be a throwback because she has a strange single comb and no lacing at all. So the closest "variety" that describes her is polka-dotted. Despite that, I personally think her type is nice, and boy is she HUGE :eek: She is also a year old.

    Larry Bird my sweet bantam Orpington. Larry is the lowest in pecking order, but she is super sweet! She never fails to make me smile because she is a little angel. She is a year old like the others.

    Puffy one of my two three-quarter Silkie one-quarter Milie Fleur Belgian Bearded D'uccle sisters. She loves to go broody and is second lowest in pecking order even though her sister is the 5-7 highest. She is two years old.

    Fluffy the other Silkie cross sister. She is very mean and grumpy normally, but when she goes broody she becomes annoying because you have to collect the eggs with gloves because she tries to scratch your hand to pieces. Like her sister she is two.

    Patches one of my Rhodebar hens. She likes to get involved I what you are doing and sometimes takes it to far by biting my legs over and over for attention. She is a year old.

    America another Rhodebar. She received her name because when she was younger she was mostly red with blue-ish tail feathers and white on her wing tips. Don't tell the others but she is probably my favorite! She is a year old.

    Chocolate yet another Rhodebar. She is pretty friendly, sometimes she will even jump in my lap! When she was younger her and Patches were almost identical. She is a year old.

    Millie the last Rhodebar hen. She loves negative attention so she will peck you constantly until you talk to or pet her. She a year old too.

    Last but not least, Rosie a Cream Legbar hen. She is almost bantam sized even though she is large fowl. She is also a year old.

    I recently received 19 new chicks from Horstman's Poultry!! I am very pleased with this batch and finally had a photo shoot of all the chicks. I don't know their personalities completely yet so I have only gotten to name a few, but you can give me name suggestions in the comments!

    Here is the smallest Rose-combed Rhode Island Red cockerel, Bear.

    Here is my only Silver Pencilled Plymouth Rock pullet, Scamper. She received her name because when she was little she looked just like a chipmunk, so I gave her a chipmunk name!

    This is one of my Silver Pencilled Plymouth Rock cockerels, Droopy. He received his name because when he was young he had weak wings so they would hang down to the ground when standing. He also somehow broke one of his toes so it always looked bent. Another problem he had was that he had a ton of red leakage on his back, which made him almost salmon colored. Although he had many problems, he was also a really sweet boy. We recently took him to the auction so there won't be any updated pictures.

    Here is my only Barred Plymouth Rock bantam pullet, Lucky. She received her name because when she came in the mail, she was very week, SUPER tiny, and I was never convinced she would live. Now she is happy and healthy and you would have never guessed that she ever had any problems!

    Here is Pancake my White Crested Black Polish pullet. She can never seem to finish growing her crest, the pin feathers appear and then they grow SUPER slowly!

    This is Poofy a White Crested Black Polish pullet. She had the best crest until I trimmed about two inches from each side of her crest so she could see better.

    Beautiful flock!!! I'd say the prettiest hen, would probably be America! And Mr. Golden Cukoo Marans is a very handsome boy!! Although I do believe I've taken a liking to Hawk. :) Marvelous flock, all of your chickens are beautiful!!
  3. autumnhearth
    Lovely flock! Your Rhodebars are beautiful. I'd never considered them as a breed I would want but you're making me rethink that. We have an EE like your Hawk and pretty sure we will be getting an Australorp next spring to replace my BCM who passed recently. Need to have a black hen in the flock.

    Rusty is a fine looking specimen! I'd snap him right up lol. I have many of the same birds you do except Patches, Fluffy and Puffy. Cheetah does take the cake when it comes to your prettiest hen, she looks amazing! I'm in the same boat with unfriendly EE's. I have around 15 of them and unless you have a treat they act like they want nothing to do with you lol. I have an EE/Red Star mix who we claim is feral lol, that chicken is out of control, we don't mess with her ever. If she wants to be in by the ducks we let her, roam the barn - ok, free range well thats fine too. Characteristics are different just like us humans.. Beautiful flock, thank you for sharing!
