  1. ok, so my babies are growing up, just like everyone else's. All our peeps are getting their real feathers, finally fitting into their feet, etc. We are all used to the 'first time' things they do, and stuff, but I had been dreading the day my two little white Cochins Princess and Peaches found the dust box. DREADING it. well yesterday it finally happened. My pristene bright white innocent girly girl became grey. *sigh...* she was so innocent, so pure.... *tears run down my cheeks* soooooooo CLEAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And she had an absolute ball. It was great. She is no longer that bright 'show quality' white, but hey, it was worth it. At least Peaches has the nerve to stay clean. Yea, I bet not for long. [​IMG]

    I am loving how nice their heads are. Those are some pretty birds. Nice big faces, they remind me of a hawk.

  8. a very happy grey color indeed. [​IMG] i just adore her.

    Last night, there she goes. PEACHES WENT FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went into the big girl pen to find that Peaches had learned the art from Princess. she looked worse than Princess. it was so funny I had to just sit down and watch. Looked like she was having a seizure in the peat. [​IMG].
