    We love our birds [​IMG]

    And the final extension to limit the free-ranging to a few hours at the end of the day. A small closable tunnel leads from it to underneath the kid's trampoline to give the birdies a much bigger roaming area and some extra shady outside from the summer sun:

    It all started out so small:

    The Ladies:

    The Benevolent leader: Scrappy, a White Amber-link.

    She has HARD molts:

    And the two additions for 2012, Lola, the Light Brahma (with no leg-feathers, hmph) and Jackie, the Buff Orpington.

    And our dearly departed, deaths by irresponsible dog owners:

    Bunny, a true but very mean Ameraucana:

    Bilbo, a Plymouth Barred Rock:

    And the one that made raising chickens a joy, the jolly Belle, a Light Brahma:

    So Sorry to hear about your Dahlia ); (tears). Your birds are beautiful and the pain job on you coop gives me inspiration to do something other than just one color. I love it! Again, my condolences.
  3. SanctusPullus
    Thanks all for the nice comments! Unfortunately, just yesterday, Dahlia passed away :( No signs of any problems or predation, just went in her sleep.

    Thanks, poultryman, still working out the kinks I discover as I go along :)
    dianabel: It sure sounds like it but I'm not a duck man yet! YET!

    have 2 mandarin ducks that are loosing feathers around neck. Do you think they are molting?
  7. NoZolbitty
    poor Scrappy, what are you giving her during her molt, I know there is a plumage supplement made for cage birds, I wonder if it would work for her

    Great pictures. We have two Cuckoo Marans x Dominique pullets that are the spitting image of Cookie. They are only 9 weeks old, but I can't wait to see what their eggs look like. And I love the paint treatment on the coop.

    What a lovely way to start my Sunday! Looking at your chicks/chickens brought a smile to my face. I love your Dahlia! I am hankering for a Jubilee Orpington that looks, at least to my untrained eyes, very similar to the Speckled Sussex.

    I love seeing the baby/grownup pictures together. Obviously, you all do love your birds very much. And must say Dahlia is such a beauty! Thank you for posting these.
