    I'll start with my Bielefelders (Bielefelder Kenn-Hühn) They're about 5 months old and I've had them for 6 weeks. I was told that they're the cows of the chicken world, they just peck the tips of the grass and don't dig up the grass roots as much as other chickens.... so far so good.

    Here is Sergeant Pepper

    And one of his two ladies

    Messy's eyes are like broken emeralds. Shattered but focused. I like the red rooster with the white earlobes. Heck, I like them all!

    I didn't breed him unfortunately, but he is show quality. We don't really have poultry shows in Austria though [​IMG] . A neighbor has 6 of my eggs under a broody bantam, I'm hoping for some great birds.

    Here is another one of Carrot in all his glory...

    lol.

    He's an Altsteirer, an old Austrian breed. They where almost extinct 20 years ago, they got the numbers back up, but they're still rare. They either come in red partridge or white, I'm not too keen on the white ones to be honest.
