    I dunno if people will care about this or not, but I decided to make a thread to share pics of my chooks. So for those who want to see my chooks, enjoy [​IMG] I really enjoy taking photos of my chooks, so I might update this thread every now and then (I won't post as many as this in one go though haha) [​IMG] I usually lower the quality of my pics a bit for faster upload, but most of them shouldn't be too bad. (Also, only some of my chooks have names, so yeah)

    I'll start with the first hens I got at 7 weeks old, I don't know what breed they are, now they're 6 months old.

    This is Legolas.

    This little girl doesn't have a name, but she got attacked by a dog i was looking after when she was around 10 weeks old and survived. She's a fighter thats for sure! The pink stuff is antiseptic spray I put on her wounds, It still hasn't come off her lol.
    [​IMG]

    This girl doesn't have a name either, she's a sister to the two above.

    This is my beloved 'Mr. Roo' who was raised with the above girls [​IMG] I assume he's some kind of light sussex cross
    [​IMG]

    These girls came from a friend who couldn't keep them any more, they are about 1 year old. Gorgeous things, very dominant with the rest of the flock, but nice girls to me.

    They're not all in these photos, but I have 14 ISA brown hens (Australian production layer hens) They're just over a year old and came from a free range chook farm... he gave them to me a little earlier than he usually lets his hens go because they were getting hen pecked for some reason.

    My 3 year old Australorp girl, she's got the most beautiful personality :)

    One of my 3 Welsummer pullets now 21 weeks old with no sign of eggs yet... I'm eagerly waiting [​IMG]

    Welsummer number 2

    Welsummer number 3... I actually suspect she's a Wellie crossed with a Barnevelder... she looked pure as a chick... not so much now though.

    My 15 week old Australorp X Cochin, she has a couple of feathers on her feet.

    Here she is at 15 weeks.

    And last but not least, my little ISA brown chick. Not sure of her exact age, she's a little younger than my other chicks.

    And just for the sake of it, here's some of the roosters i've had to re-home.


    This boy was raised with Mr. Roo and my white hens.
    [​IMG]

    This boy was raised with that lot too, I really really wanted to keep this boy, but he became really aggressive towards me at around 4 months old, so he just had to go.
    [​IMG]


    My Welsummer Roo who was supposed to be a pullet, he was gorgeous, I would have loved to keep him for breeding, but i'm just not set up for keeping 2 rooster separate at the moment.
    [​IMG]

    Australian Araucana rooster who was also supposed to be a pullet.

    And an Australorp rooster who was also supposed to be a pullet :p

    I lost my Australorp X Cochin chick and my pure Australorp chick to a mystery illness last week [​IMG] So no more photos of them...

    I thought this was a cool shot, I like how perfectly circle the ring of black is.
