    I can't say it enough- I love October. It's hands down my favorite month of the whole year. I get giddy when I spy pumpkin ice cream, Halloween decorations, and that first yellow leaf. It's also the time that i grab my camera at the drop of a feather. So I present to you, Babies in the Fall. :p

    The Guineas love Matt's new car. They really love the sound their claws make on the shiny new paint. :eek:

    Owl'ra, the Big Man of the Coop

    Ghandi, back on the grass after the fog massacre. He's still growing feathers back, but you can't see his spine anymore, and he's gaining some weight back.

    Everyone in the garden, cleaning up what's left. Spot the Guinea.

    The Waterfowl Mafia disapproves of all this frivolity, and promptly breaks up the party.

    Frankenchicken. An OEG x Silkie (one of Ghandi's kids). She's actually quite lovely and very soft.

    Frankenchicken is running with a rowdy crowd. Pretty soon, she won't come home at night and will only want to eat bugs.

    Bosley and his Angels.

    Ameraucana baby

    She likes to peck her own shadow.

    This one looks like a hawk.

    Crevecouers have odd noses.

    I has a roost.

    Blue Cochin baby

    Queen Anne wants to know how to get in to the FULL feeder.

    A Blue Cochin, an Ameraucana butt, a Polish in the back, and a Brahma standing WAY above the rest.

    So there. That's what I did today. There's a bunch more, old and new here.

    Beautiful pictures.

    I agree 100% about the roost pic. I've actually scrolled up twice to look at it again. I love the way her little head is cocked to the side.

  8. You should submit the baby on the roost for the pic of the week!
