    First photo op of the year! Also, first photo op on the new BYC, so please excuse me if I make any mistakes. Still figuring out some things on here. ;)

    So, I asked around, and it was unanimous among the girls:
    It's too cold for a photo op!

    But I went around and tried to get some good pics anyway. =D

    Diana (with her head up), Kate (with her head down), and Mako (underneath Diana) were busy in the nest:

    I'll come back to them later.
    (Yes, that cat litter bucket in front of them is supposed to be the nest, but they much prefer to lay behind it. :rolleyes: )


    Freema would not leave the roost. The white plague is here and she won't have anything to do with it.
    [​IMG]

    And it doesn't matter how much I stick a camera in her face.

    Wynne has reverted to an egg-shape. She, too, is on strike against the white plague.
    [​IMG]

    And she still thinks it's too cold for a photo op.
    [​IMG]



    Betty looks like she's still mad.
    [​IMG]

    However, adventure calls. She's headin' out!

    Debra Jo loves the snow.
    [​IMG]

    She loves to eat it.
    [​IMG]

    NOM.
    [​IMG]

    And there's nothing wrong with that.
    [​IMG]



    Diana is always happy and optimistic.
    [​IMG]

    The snow will go away eventually, right?
    [​IMG]

    Diana's such a big girl, but she's so skinny. If you need some help envisioning just how skinny this girl is, here ya go:
    [​IMG]



    Cricket is just the opposite of her optimistic sister. It's still too cold.
    [​IMG]

    "Unless you can make it warm again, go away."
    [​IMG]



    Well, let's check on the girls in the nest box again. Diana was out, maybe the others are, too.
    [​IMG]
    ...Or not. Looks like older-hen Corella's getting into the nest box shuffle, too. (Corella is the white butt to the left.)



    Back out in the snow, Cressy's doing some exploring.
    [​IMG]

    "It's really not that bad once your toes go numb."
    [​IMG]
    (My dad thinks she always looks angry. I think Cress just has heavy eyebrows. I'll leave you guys to make up your own minds about that. ;) )



    Natalie's not leaving the shelter of the doglu.
    [​IMG]

    'Nuff said.
    [​IMG]



    The doglu's not warm enough for Maggie.
    [​IMG]

    She's making a run for the coop!
    [​IMG]



    Looks like Kate's finished in the nest.
    [​IMG]

    She's not liking how much colder it is out here, though...
    [​IMG]



    Okay, one last check on the nest. We still need Mako pictures.
    ( Corella says, "Some privacy, please!" )
    [​IMG]

    Well, I guess I'll have to make due with what I can get here...


    Mako sure takes her time in the nest.
    [​IMG]

    ...Wait a minute, is she asleep?!
    [​IMG]


    (I'll link to the past 7 photo ops here eventually. :lol: )
