    This is my Jerry. He was born in August 2007. There is a huge Splash Hen standing behind him and he isn't even standing up straight. He is a monster. After he finishes molting, he is going to be a show winner.

    This is his first daughter that was hatched here. She is 9.5 weeks old in this pic that was taken yesterday. Her name is Love Bug. She is free ranging and her feet feathers have been shredded.

    Quote:"Love Bug" is a pure Blue. Her Mom is a Splash Hen and her Dad is Jerry, the big black Roo in the first pic. The Hen is either Big or little Nicolette. They are the same size now and hard to tell apart.

    "Love Bug" has inherited her Grandmothers great lacing. This is very desirable on blue birds. I am hoping she will be SQ. She is showing great potential, even at such a young age.
