    I tried to take some photos today of the Ameraucanas in particular for someone who wants hatching eggs, but also decided to take some of the Suede-ettes as well. They are maturing nicely, I think, all of them. I just wish I could get a pic of Skye (young blue Orp) when she isn't running the other direction, LOL. She's camera shy. Here are Scout with his ladies and Suede with his ladies.

    Oh Cynthia..you're giving me the blues. I am drooling over those blue orpies. You know buff is by far my favorite, but those blues are just gorgeous. I'm thinking I've gotta have some. [​IMG] DH is going to strangle me one day.

    I may one day put a couple of Buff ladies in with Suede. I tried to get the Brahmas out, but they are in love with their man and refuse to lay eggs without him, LOL. They pace and run the fence and cry till I let them back in. And they've even spent the night with Hawkeye's group more than once, but that's been awhile. Hawkeye doesn't even look at them.
    Maybe one day we can trade Blues for Buffs, Jody!

    Your birds are just amazing. I can't even believe how amazing they look.

    I so want a couple of your blue orps some day.. And wouldn't say no to a couple of scouts babies too..

    Course, if the dh sees me typing this he's going to yell at me for talking about more chickens.. [​IMG]

    (DH stealing KB) NO darn it! GAH! We've gone from 24 eggs to 2 adults, 16 chicks and a fluffball, errr sorrry . .. "silkie" on the way, in LESS than a week. And yours truly still doesn't have the coops built. Naughty wifey, no chickey!

    (Right, so from 24 to 19, we've dropped 5, what's your complaint love? [​IMG] And it's been way more than a week since this all started being planned, so I don't want to hear this "in just a week" nonsense.)

    Errr.. sorry about that (we're sitting next to eachother, he heard me chuckling and had to get involved [​IMG]).. And speckledhen, he'll cave in the spring, we'll talk then. [​IMG]

    hehe
