    :lol:LOL! Minnie is a cute name! Ours is named Cosette! She is 2 weeks younger than our cockerel but is on the small side still. Here is a current pic of the two of them:

    If I post pics of some LF ameracaunas I got from Wayne Merideth will you guys tell me who I should keep for breeding and showing purposes? I have a lot. Whites, blues, blacks, buffs, blue wheatens.

    Thank you, Bravo & Jeremy! Jeremy, I'm so glad that both of them ended up with puffy cheeks and beards! My DD thinks that Cosette looks like a little owl. Her favorite books right now are the Guardians of Ga'Hoole books. Here is one more pic of her with one of our OE's behind her.
