Ah, just a month ago, I was posting about my little girls' 2 month 'birthday'... My, have they grown. (The 2 month board is here, by the way: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=535599 ) I didn't get a picture of the boys, though. They've grown too 'mature' for the pullets and I decided I didn't want them ripping the poor girls' feathers out before they're ready. They're in separate pens because they no longer get along with each other, either. Anyway, on to the girls! I got a new camera for my own birthday, which takes much better pics than the cell phone I used last time. They are Easter-Eggers and Barred Rocks, in case you wondered. I've gotten to know them a bit better since the last photo op, so I have short blurbs about their personalities, too. ...Okay, I'm a crazy chicken lady, no need to point it out. Here goes nothin'! Freema: Freema is so sweet. Yesterday, she spent a good ten minutes just lounging on my lap while I stroked her back, talking up a storm. Filled me in on the gossip, anyway. XD Diana: Diana's quiet and calm, the last one to panic if something happens. She likes to pose for the camera, too. Natalie: Natalie's usually in the background, but quite curious and definitely not shy. Cressida: Cressy is Freema's best friend--seems like they're always together. Cressy loves to hop up on my arms. And she is just so pretty, too! Maggie: Mags is my tough little girl. If she doesn't want to be picked up, by golly, she'll take a swing at you! But she doesn't mind being petted and she has the softest beard! Betty: Bett is the little adventurer. She's the first one to check things out and she's bold as can be. If she wants your attention, you'll know it! She also reminds me of a muppet and I have yet to capture a picture of why--but I'm trying my darndest! Cricket: Good ol' Clumsy-Cricket. Tell you what, this girl is such a claud! She flies right into me and claws up my arms and legs all the time! But she adores attention and she's a pretty nice little girl in spite of it all... Kathryn: Kate used to be pretty sassy, but she's become quite shy recently. She's reclusive, but hangs out with Debra Jo sometimes. And camera shy, boy. Took me a long time to get a good picture. Debra Jo: Miss Attitude. 'Nuff said. Mako: The only one that's afraid of people. She makes a racket if you try to touch her and if you manage to pick her up..! Whoa! Wynne: Wynne is so gentle and quiet... She's still a little afraid of quick movements, but she'll let me pet her and rub her beard without complaint. And that's the girls. In the next few weeks, we'll be introducing them to the big girls. Be ready for pictures and horror stories then!
