    I was out taking pictures on a cloudy day here today. I thought it was time to get some new ones of my EEs before the snow comes again. Enjoy!

    Oreo - my good boy rooster who takes care of the ladies. He was white with black polka dots as a baby chick

    [​IMG]

    Slate - she doesn't care for her picture taken much. She was also much bluer before her moult, thus her name.

    [​IMG]

    Cocoa - she was a chocolate brown baby chick and is our smallest hen

    [​IMG]

    Whitney - my white ameraucana girl..she is still a bit skittish, but settling into the flock well.

    [​IMG]

    Amelia - my black ameraucana hen...she is a very curious bird...always wants to know what's going on. Amelia is a very determined broody.

    [​IMG]

    Cheyenne (white head) and Sassy (brown girl) - Cheyenne is another nice sized lady that leads the flock. Sassy goes broody once a year.

    [​IMG]

    Gizmo - she looks mean in her pic, but she is a sweet girl...probably the most tom-boyish tho and a flock leader.

    [​IMG]

    Raven - she was named after her dark black head, which doesn't match the rest of her body. lol She is a naughty one that likes to antagonize the wild turkeys and always last to bed.

    [​IMG]

    Cinnamon - my most friendly EE hen is on the left by Slate. She loves my dd and always wants to be picked up and cuddled.

    you caught Oreo in the middle of his action there, looks so funny, do your girls sound like they're being axe murdered when he does his thing?

    They are so colorful. I adore Slate's color, Jody. Hmm, maybe one day I'll just get some EEs from you to hatch, you never know. Oreo is quite the looker, too.
