    Mosby and Bonnie Blue where given to me by TuffOldHen on Feb 9th . At that time they were 12 weeks old.

    Mosby is a good sized boy for his age. He is an armfull.

    I love the way his color is coming in with his adult feathering.

    TOH, what do you think of how your blue boy and girl are growing out?

    Cyn, wanna use your critical eye and give me some opinions on him?

    I know you didn't ask my opinion of Mosby & Bonnie Blue but I'm gonna give it to you anyhow. [​IMG] I gave TOH and Cyn ample time to respond and they didn't. So here goes:
    I don't think you are going to be pleased with them. So rather than see them wind up in a pot of stew, just crate them up and ship them on down here to me. I have 27 young ladies running around out there in the pasture that would be more than happy to make room for Mosby on their roost. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I'll even spring for the shipping and handling charges.
    Prissy, they are beautiful. I can only dream and hope for the day that I might have some birds of that caliber. But I am seriously working on it very hard.
    Congratulations on them. I am truly so happy for you.

    Sorry, I took a break. And I come back to these beauties! Very nice, Priss. He's got a nice, broad body and getting those saddle feathers in. I think he's very handsome, actually.

    He is so big and fluffy! And he is sweet. I hope he stays sweet.

    My BR roo is mean. I was gonna dispatch him but instead I have found someone to take him. He tried to flog me not once but twice and I had to beat him down! The guy who wants him has no kids and is willing to take him temper and all.
