    So the boys are gone (no more roos [​IMG]) and a new girl joined the flock...today I finally let "the new flock" free ranged. They are cooped up most of the day in a 5'x10' run 5'x4' coop and what do they do? They go into the small cage, the one I had the new girl in (so they could meet each other!)

    all cramped up!!! I had to take them out! lol


    Other pics:

    The new girl Cookoo Marans named by my kid "Loca"


    Without the boys, they just wont go too far from the coop yet!


    HEY! How did you get to that side!!?


    The reds (Minerva and Pandora)


    The EEs [Thalia (white) and Diana(other! lol)]...never mind pandora back there!!! lol


    I don't think my dogs would approve!!!

    I think they thought the new hen's cage was the elevator to the mall. That's what chicks do when we get together!!!

    Quote:not really 100% sure....she/he is @ the bottom of the pecking order, even now that the boys are gone, her comb was smaller than the confirm roo ee yet a little bigger than the confirn hen...who knows!!! lol...but then again the body of "the confirmed hen" looks rooish to me! lol

    Juan! I like your screen name! [​IMG]
    Good looking family, flock and assorted pets (your BYC page).
    I noticed you have chicken nipples on a pitcher- I made mine about 2 months ago, and boy what a difference
    it made...clean and dry living for the girls!
    Speaking of girls, I agree with you, and think the white EE looks like a hen, and the orange EE looks like a Roo (saddle feathers?).

    Have fun!
