    Someone asked me the other day how I could tell my brahmas were getting fat...umm, I looked at them! [​IMG]

    It's been awhile since I've taken pics of them (too busy with the babies), so here are some. They will be 3 years old in April.

    The big guy, Thor (pardon his dirty feathers, I am not about to give this roo a bath):

    Gosh, they're lovely! If only they didn't eat so much, I'd have a few or 10!

    Quote:LOL Red, Lilith is actually a poor quality example of a buff. Someone once explained to me the process by which her feathers got "laced", but it's complicated.

    Sometimes natures accidents are the prettiest things, don't you think?
