    Well, I spent most of the day digging slop out of the chicken yard and replacing it with sand, but I still made time for my girlies on the 9 month anniversary of their joining the family. :D


    Frou-Frou the blue splash Marans had a lot of complaining to do about the mud.

    She then went to work making a nest in the sand in the corner of the coop. :rolleyes:

    Biddy-bird the speckled Sussex was not in the mood for pictures after a sudden downpour of rain soaked her feathers.

    She made her objection quite clear.

    Poggy the speckled Sussex posed pretty for me. She always poses so well for pictures. :love

    Fancy the partridge Plymouth Rock was too busy in the nest...

    ...So I moved on to her 'twin', She Who Sleeps Standing Up. She Who was drinking in the rain. Ugh.

    Frou-frou had laid her egg by then and was protecting it like a good girl. This was so sweet. :love

    Fancy had finished in the nests and posed nicely for a picture.

    [​IMG]




    She Who took on egg song duties for her sister. :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]




    Biddy-bird joined in the egg song.

    She then gave me a nice pose as well.

    And, well, that's it. :th I'm worn out. Good night, BYCers.

    Lovely! Thanks so much for sharing!

    I have Speckled Sussex eggs in my incubator. So hoping for some to hatch! (Bet they'll all be cockerels... Just my luck as a roo-hatcher.)

    Yours are lovely examples of exactly what I want to add to my flock.

    Thank you both for the comments! :)

    gryeyes, they're lovely birds. I'm sure you'll love them. :D A bit on the pushy side when they're curious about something, though. I'm practically juggling those two to keep them out of the feed shed while I'm getting the chicken feed around in the morning. :rolleyes:
