    I caught some of the Girls eating snow off the leaves today and my 14 week old Barred Rock boy sparring with the Blue Orp cockerels through the fence-guess they're the only ones on this place that don't intimidate him, LOL. Zane is looking more manly these days with his saddle feathers finally coming in better and his many crowing attempts. Got a shot of him with his dad, Hawkeye, in the picture, facing the same direction. Poor plucked Hawkeye-don't look at that; his one woman Olivia plucks his saddle feathers as they grow in and Meg pecks on his comb and wattles. He's just too good to those girls! I believe Zane will look more like Hawkeye than Gabriel does, don't you, Ga Chicken Mom? He's of a more stocky-type build.

    My chickens look pathetic. Thanks for the eye candy. Mine have molted, a couple I think are trying to go broody - 2 white wyandottes that have plucked their chests nearly bare ... I am seriously considering putting duct tape on them [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Well, Hawkeye sure looks pathetic! If Livvie would leave his new saddle feathers alone and Meg would quit trying to eat his comb and wattles for a snack, he'd be fine. Plus some are covered in the fine red dirt that's around the foundation of my house they dustbathe in-all the white feathers are clay colored. One of my SLWs, Violet, is molting, I noticed. Her bottom is almost bare and she's missing breast feathers. For the most part, the molt here is over, thank goodness. Sunny may be slightly bare under her wings and bottom, but the rest are looking fat and sassy now, even formerly-pitiful Lexie. A few have small bare spots right above the tail, the usual places for rooster-favorites.

    They look really great! My Browns have been Sir Roo's favorites lately and the poor girls are showing the wear.

    Nice once my hens start to lay I will have to post pictures I am afraid they will not be looking there best untill they molt because of the heatlamp incident.

    Thanks,

    [​IMG] I've missed Hawkeye! And I always love seeing the Poofy Headed Sisters!!
    Missing saddle feathers or not, I still love him. (Don't tell Suede!)

    I love him, too, Carri. He's my main man and always will be. They don't come any better than my Hawkeye. I sure lucked out when I rescued that boy. [​IMG]
