Pinky & the dottes & others...

    I have a golden laced wyandotte named Pinky! He is now 9.5 months old! He is the prettiest rooster [​IMG]

    His names Pinky b/c of course when he was little I put a pink band on his leg thinkin I had all pullets at 3 wks old, of course he turned out to be a cock! DOH! But I was glad b/c he was our 1st roo! He's tame - I can just walk over to him & pick him up & hold him like a baby - especially when he was going through the horrible puberty stage 4-6 months - started shuffling towards me when I came around & pecked me a few times but I broke him of that QUICK! Pinky has 4 golden laced wyandotte girls...DD "Darkydotte", Harlet (1st one to squat lol), Goldy, & Purpledotte, Brownie (RIP: taken by an animal 1/25/13). They all have their own attitudes. DD's a sweetheart - darkest out of them (hatched her egg 2 wks ago; turned out to be a boy that had the brightest coloring out of 15 babies) - weird. Anyway here's a pic of her...

    Then my little Harlet - She used to be pretty flighty, now she loves me & follows me around alot when I'm outside & is always off wandering by herself. She's also the only 1 that has hairy fluff ears lol, here's her...
    [​IMG]
    Next is Goldy - my favorite - dotte. She's noticeably diff compared to the others, her chest's so gold that the dotte patterns almost washed out...but I love it; her butt feathers are also totally gold, which I think is just awesome/funny - hehe -

    Next is Purpledotte (couldn't think of a better name) she's the boss of the group - besides Pinky of course, pretty easygoing, not as tame as the others though, she has a noticeably shorter comb with a lil pimple on it looks like...here's her...
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    (R.I.P. 1/25/13) Then there's Brownie, the flightiest & shy...her & harlet usually hang out. She's tried a # of times to pick fights w/our 3 RIR's to get a higher spot in the pecking order but always fails. Sadly she got taken by some kind of animal :(
    [​IMG]
    Then there's the 15 that was my 1st time hatching my own eggs from my dottes :) here's all 15 of them...we kept the 2 on
    my dog's back; their names are Munky & Cinder!

    These are only 1/4th of my chickens. I also have 3 RIR's: Bluefoot, Greenfoot, & Scaleyfoot...

    Then there's my white leghorn Whitey :) she's around 3 now, still lays eggs everyday, big ones!
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Then I have my teenagers (4 month olds)...I have 3 Australorps....Pinkylorp, Purplegirl, & Crook.

    Next in the teenager group is Fuzzyhead - he's my faverolle/silkie mix...I love him, he's so adorable & was my 1st 5-toed featherfooted chicken :) hehe

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Next up is my 4 Nankin/OE mixes :) "Lil Brat", "Angel", "Anya", & "Dawn"
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Next I have 2 new silkies, 1 is a blue silkie "Willow", & the other is her best friend "Anya" she's the buff 1.[​IMG]
    Next is my sweet Jersey giant pullet, "Jersey", she's getting incredibly pretty :)
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Then there's my Jersey giant/Prod. red mix..."Fudge" she's my sweetheart...love her black feet w/white body!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Then I have my brand new Seramas; :) I love em already, now just gotta tame em! Rusty is the browner 1, he's spirited & curious, the other roo is Ruger :) I think 1 of the girls will be named "Cruella" b/c they're mean![​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Lastly I have 24 chickies atm that were hatched around 1/15/13 (20 dottes - who are going to be sold - 2 faverolles, 1 serama, & 1 leghorn dotte). The serama is named Whip - b/c he's a miracle chicken - :) & then there's plucky & twinkie for the faverolles & snowball for my leghorn mix.

    I've always preferred the beauty of the Wyandotte over all the others. Something about that broad body and that rose comb. I once had a white Wyandotte hen who used to jump in the truck with me and go for a ride. I'll never forget her.

    :) jcyny2000: Yea my parents didn't like his name at first b/c it was too "girly" but I just say "It's kinda like one of those prison names like "Tiny" lol think of it that way!" Yea these were our first wyandottes, we saw the silver laced but just loved the look of the golden laced hens especially. So we're starting to breed and sell Pinky & his girls' eggs & chicks along with our new seramas :)

    OHH my, I have one but his name is Red! He is a total sweetheart. The GLW has been an awesome breed and I will always have them. Currently have Red and his 3 girls, spike, mabel and sophie. Red will doze off in my lap if i let him. They are good layers and gentle birds :)
