    Tee hee .. yep, fluffy butts galore around here!

    I am not sure why .. I guess because of the breed. In the top photo, from left to right we have a Pekin [or Bantam Cochin, or Pekin Bantam or Pekin Cochin or Pekin Bantam Cochin, depending who you are talking to and from where you hail [​IMG]] in the middle is a Silkie mix and on the right is a Silkie mix Frizzle.

    The bottom photo is two x Pekin butts!

    One drawback from having extremely fluffy butts is that after laying their egg, if they linger in the nest box, the eggs dries and sticks to their feathers [​IMG]

    I have had to bail up each and all of these gals at some stage or other, while they are walking around the garden, complete with egg, to remove it [​IMG]

    They lay in the nest box, jump out and take the egg with them [​IMG]

    Thank you so much. I am building a 4 x 4 x 6 coop for my hens as a add on to my run. I bought one of those ''cape cod'' coops from haynedle.com.it is so small i think it was meant for bantams. my pullets were fine there when they were small but i dont want to crowd them so i should be finished this weekend with my coop palace.I just need a window for sunlight.
