    Okay, so I took the pictures on the wednesday before Thanksgiving (the approximate day they turned 7 months old), so y'all can probably guess why it's taken me until now to post them. XD

    (And after struggling with photobucket for the past half an hour or so, I actually have the pictures uploaded! [​IMG] )

    Everyone with a beard is an Easter-Egger, everyone with bars is a Barred Rock! Enjoy!


    Cressy was very interested in the camera:
    [​IMG]

    Or, at least until something else caught her eye:
    [​IMG]


    Betty went out on a limb to get my attention:
    [​IMG]

    Moving on--HEY! Betty wasn't done with her attention! She squawks in protest:
    [​IMG]


    Freema's giving the 'innocent look'. I wonder what she was getting into before I noticed her...:
    [​IMG]

    'Who me? I never get into things!':
    [​IMG]


    Debra Jo dances by. She's far too busy for more than one picture:
    [​IMG]


    Wynne has an affection for the spotlight:
    [​IMG]

    But all the excitement has worn her out:
    [​IMG]


    The boys don't know what to think of all this:
    [​IMG]
    (Thomas on the left, Moose on the right)


    Natalie doesn't approve of the paparazzi:
    [​IMG]

    So I had to sneak a picture of her--Surprise!:
    [​IMG]


    Kate knew what was up. She wasn't coming out from under the forsythia until I put the camera away! Too bad it lost most of its leaves already:
    [​IMG]


    Maggie saw this and gave up. 'Let's just get it over with,' she says with a roll of her eyes:
    [​IMG]


    Mako, on the other hand (wing?) doesn't mind a few photos, 'But no autographs, please.':
    [​IMG]


    Cricket was so surprised, she squatted right then and there!:
    [​IMG]

    When she noticed it was just me and my camera, well, that was the end of her:
    [​IMG]


    Hours later, Diana has finally given me her rent and is allowed out of the nest box / jail:
    [​IMG]
    (She must be mad about how she's been treated! Look at those eyes!)



    If you're curious or just bored, here are the past photo ops, if you'd like to compare:

    Quote:So cute! My chickens didn't like the snow, in fact they squawked so much I ended up shoveling out a nice path for them. Unfortunately, they were stuck in the pen for almost a month waiting for the snow to melt.

    My young pullets first look at snow! October 2011!

    Ah, thanks for all the comments! [​IMG]

    theoldchick- I love that one, too! Cricket's always been generous with the squats since she started, though. She just sits there for five minutes every time she does it for me. [​IMG]

    emerald eyes- I think I spoke too soon when I said that... [​IMG] We've gotten about 4 inches of snow today, and it started not long after I posted, too. [​IMG] Oh, well. [​IMG] Fran's quite a character! I've always loved that pattern on chickens, too. [​IMG]


    (Good night, BYC. You've kept me up too late as it is. XD )
    (Edited for spelling. This time, good night for sure. [​IMG] )
