Very beautiful birds! Although I am not sure what I am more jealous of...the pretty chickens or that lovely green grass.
I just got my first chickens 5 weeks ago and am so anxious for them to mature into the fine specimens you have!

Very nice, Rog. I'm hatching some Buff Orps in this next batch because I only have my two Golden Girls, Sunny and Ginger, hatchery birds, although not bad ones overall. They're over two years old now and I dont want to be without some Buff Orps in my flock ever.
BTW, my DH wants to know what all that green stuff is, LOL.

When I saw the "population of 100+" I was afraid of seeing overcrowded, dirt floor pens. But the pictures proved I had a totally wrong impression! Your 100 birds have a much larger area than my 50, plus you have perfectly gorgeous green grass! Great pictures, great job

Tell him that green stuff is what kept me outside until 8 o'clock tonight until it got to dark to see on the mower. I have 3 acres of that green stuff and it can get in the way of my doing things that I would much rather do.
Along with it comes the heat, humidity, rain, mosquitoes and you name it.
And I for one do not do good in the heat.
I know and appreciate that there a lot of people on this forum that are in the cold and snow tonight. Here I am with the A/C running full blast, sweating on the mower, and asking myself: "Why didn't I cancel my return flight and just stay in Alaska last summer when I was there?"

Sometimes my elevator doesn't always go up to the top floor if you know what I mean.

Thanks for the compliment. No, I for one firmly do not believe in penning and over crowding. My girls have a full acre and half all to their own and they love it. Then they get to raid the garden after the crops are finished. I will have some breeding pens but you can bet your boots that they will be more than comfortable for the trios.​
