    I promised a coupla weeks ago that I would eventually post pics of my bantam araucanas, but it took me until today to actually get the pics taken.

    Go to this page to see a whole buncha thumbnails:

    http://www.doberinfo.com/chickenpics/bantamAraucanacatalog/bantamaraucanas--08-29-08.html

    You can click on each smaller pic to see a larger one. The roo is Fauntleroy, the brown pullet is Priscilla, and the splash pullet is Pouf.

    And as an appetizer, here's my bestest buddy -- Priscilla, Queen of the Dessert:

    aww they're cute. I've always liked Aracaunas but as no one has unlimited space, I've had to choose breeds I really like.

    Yeah, I never intended to have these guys at all. A breeder gave them to me, though, and I couldn't turn them down. And I'm not sorry to have them! [​IMG]

    LOL Priscilla, Queen of the Desert !! I own that movie, haven't watched it in a couple of years.

    I have an Atticus Finch (he's a spangled oegb, looks a bit like he'd make a good lawyer - he certainly crows a lot)

    Pretty birds, btw <g>.

    Peace -

    Thanks guys! I think they are completely adorable myself. [​IMG]

    Meriah -- the movie is Queen of the Desert, my Priscilla is Queen of the Dessert. Can't you see that tummy pooching out there? [​IMG]

    My father says they look like Shmoos. Which they really really do. If you're not old enough to know what a Shmoo is, look up old Lil' Abner cartoons. [​IMG]
