    Cameras and online colors seldom look like the natural object in reality - one reason that I don't post pics of my egg colors. My camera makes the eggs look deeper and more colorful than in reality.

    It isn't a dust bath because when the do this they are completely immobile. I never can catch them at it. They stand all their feathers on end...it is sooooo funny.

    First time I saw my Silkies do this on the hot paver stone patio I thought they were dead or dying. Chickens are a hoot!

    X2 -- I did this big long expose on the "savasana" or shavasana yoga position and how my chickens were doing Yoga - now-a-days that asana is called the 'corpse pose' (I think back in my day it was called the sponge...but corpse is so much more descriptive...)--- EXCEPT - they hold their feathers upright. A Cream Legbar Pullet with her crest all raised, along with hackels etc...is like she stuck her toe in the light socket. (Then my computer couldn't save it to my blog -- so I had to trot over here and post those picts.)---- Yes you are right they are a Hoot! :O)

    They are very nice. I hatched 21 chicks and end up with 15 cockerels. Many of the cockerel has crooked comb. There are too many gold feathers on the cockerel and pullet.

    I am also getting a high ratio of cockerels: 3 roos to every 1 pullet...it doesn't seem to matter what time of year, if they are from an incubator or a broody hen; the overall hatch rate is 50% or less, maybe the losses are all females...
