Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. I live on a small farm in PA with my human and animal family. We have two horses, two dogs (a Bernese Mountain Dog named Ruger and a Golden Retriever named Dean), two rabbits and three cats. I used to have chickens on my farm but had a family tragedy and had to re-home my hens. I said I wasn't going to get chickens again but we see how that turned out. My BFF and her daughters got some Wyandottes last fall and I somehow *gee, how did that happen?* ended up with one of her roosters. He seemed pretty lonely at my barn and would follow me around while I did my morning chores. I would sit with him each morning and have my coffee. BFF got some peeps from Foley's about two months ago. Since she already has some Foley birds, she gave me five of the birds this past weekend. I think they are beautiful. They are the BLRW variety and I have all three colors. A roo & a hen are the blue laced, one roo is a handsome splash, one hen has the black lace and one little guy is mahogany w/blue lacing. I also have some SL roos but they probably won't be staying long since I want to focus on the BLRW and possibly get some Buff. Here is my adult roo, Lance. He is a BLRW with black lacing. (He is not a Foley bird.) This guy is so kind to the hen I've got on loan from BFF. He also takes pretty good care of those babies. He will probably be re-homed once my new roo grows up since I want to breed blue on blue. He looks mean but he is a sweet heart. Lance again with some baby SL roos he babysat for a while. This is one of the blue laced colored babies. This is the splash. His butt feathers are a fabulous slate blue color and he's a nice, large bird for his age. I will probably not breed him since he is a splash. This is my little guy. He has taken a shine to me and likes to sit on me in the mornings and evenings. Strangely, he doesn't seem to hang out much with the other baby roos, who form a sort of bad-boy pack. Ruger Dean, my golden puppy. So that's my introduction. I've been lurking for a while and figured I'd better just go ahead and join up so I can participate.
