    Well I finally got around to naming all the girls.... finally.

    So... in the 'big girls' run:
    Red (NHR), her comb just started getting more red so I'm hoping this means eggs soon (hatched 4/6/09 same with the next 2 NHR) She's my treat hog:

    And if I don't bring treats.... she riles everyone up to try pecking them out of my leg (she's in front):
    [​IMG]

    Josephine, 'Joe', with her crooked comb, still not as red as Red's but getting close:
    [​IMG]

    Big Bertha, she's the shyest of the 3 NHR's... and the BIGGEST. I had to redo the roost situation when I figured out she can't fit where the others roost so decided to 'roost' on the poop shelf:

    Esmeralda, 'Ezzy', the mutt hen who hasn't laid an egg since 9/6/09. She's decided that I'm tolerable as long as I bring treats, gives me the stink eye when I don't:

    In the 'Little girls' run.. my EE's who are STILL terrified of me, no matter what treat I bring, what bug I catch..... :
    Top row, left to right are Freak and Panic, Bottom is Mayhem

    May will come near me if the run door is closed with me on the other side:

    And more pics of the brats, 6 weeks old.... still in the garage in the brooder. Ezzy is the mother of the 3 mutts, top to bottom Seven (EE), Karate Kid (mutt), Danielson (mutt), Miagi (mutt):

    Karate and Miagi are having an ugly boy contest, I think Miagi is winning at the moment:

    Danielson is practicing her "Brains?" pose:

    And Seven just hides from me as far back in the brooder as she can get:

    Nice pictures! I keep trying, but they keep moving. I have started aiming my camera in the direction I think they will move and just start clicking. I have alot of the backs of their heads.
    I have only named a few so far. Thurston Fowl the III was a hen, so I don't know what to do there,
    But Mrs. Slocome is a doll. I call her Betty. She has a big hairdo.
    She loves to hug.
    Who knew chickens were so much fun?[​IMG] Except all of these people here.

    I took 30 shots of the girls just to get the few I posted [​IMG] Just keep clicking, you never know what you're going to get! Take the pic of my leg and Red...... I held the camera away from me and pointed it at Red, took 3 shots and the second one was good enough to post [​IMG] I was trying to catch her actually grabbing a beak full of my jeans and pulling, silly girl.

    Red thinks I keep the treats in my pants so she'll yank at them when I don't have any for her [​IMG] She managed to stick her head down in my pocket this morning when I was changing the water.
