    Alright, so another month has passed! My little ladies are now fussing, squatting, and laying their first eggs! I got my first one from Diana, if you missed the board, and I suspect I'll be getting more from some other barred rocks before long!
    I'm trying something a little different this time--I have body shots and close ups of everyone's faces. So this one's particularly pic heavy. [​IMG]
    And I got pictures of the boys, too, though they were not very cooperative. [​IMG]

    Anyway, on to the birds! Anyone that has stripes is a barred rock! Anyone that doesn't is an Easter-egger! In alphabetical order, pullets first:

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Betty! Everyone here loves Betty!


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Cressy is such a pretty lady, but she's gotten shy recently. [​IMG]


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Cricket--doesn't she have the nicest set of lashes? [​IMG]


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Debra Jo, what a fine little lady. [​IMG]


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Diana, our first little egg layer!! And she's built, too! [​IMG]


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Freema has learned that if she tugs at my pantlegs, I'll crouch to let her on my lap. [​IMG]


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Kate, my little worrier. [​IMG]


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Maggie, the girl with the attitude.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Mako--check out the beard on this girl!!


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Natalie, the quiet one. She's getting hard to tell apart from Debra Jo!


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Little owly Wynne, she's grown into a stunning little lady!

    And the boys:

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Moose--I hate to say it, but he's, well... Dumb. [​IMG]


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Thomas, the pretty boy. Don't mind how he's standing, he was trying to find the best place to wing-dance at me from.


    And that just about fills my upload limit for BYC. [​IMG] Guess I'll have to look into another place to upload--I'd hate to delete anything.

    In case you were curious, here are all the other photo ops for these little ones:

    I believe I'd call your flock, 'Beards and Bars'! [​IMG] They are a hard working flock, look at all the dirt on their beaks! [​IMG]

    I put zip ties on the legs of my barred rocks. It made it easier to tell who was who even though if I stared long enough I could tell them apart.

    Ah, thanks for all the comments, folks! [​IMG]


    Beards and Bars, I like it. [​IMG] But these little ones are only about a third of my flock. (They'd just gotten out to free-range, so they had a lot of work ahead of them, too. [​IMG] )


    I put zipties on my sexlinks from a couple years ago, and on my Rhodies when we first got them, but I can tell them apart now without any problems, which is why I opted against doing the same for these girls. I can tell Natalie and Debra Jo apart by their tail feathers for now--hopefully by the time they shed them I'll have another trick to use [​IMG]

    Your EE's are beautiful!
    So are the BR's. I'm just very partial to the EE's.
    I want all the colors!
    xD
    You have some amazing birds.
