    Curious to see how everyone else’s birds have aged,my three year olds and five year olds seem to be looking more and more “Elderly “but still look just as perfect as they were years ago.A few changes-

    bb 316.JPG This was atleast four and half six months.
    bb 334.JPG This is the day I realized my emu legged rooster was the most beautiful thing around here.This is him at about 8 or 9 months.
    Here is a picture of him today-

    A few hens-

    Not a good pic but it’s obvious her eyes are so bad now!An she is losing rank unfortunately.Not too good of a pic but hate to say it,she got poked with the ugly stick.But we still love her.
    The end,let me see yours

    My hens are moving more slower but so do I as I get older! They don't like to be held and set in their ways and so am I... Have wrinkles and sagging go on plus grey hairs showing... Oh I forgot that's me! But yeah they are showing age and thats ok I still love them just as much!
