hey these are my barnevelder chickens
You've got some beautiful chickens!
They're very beautiful! I love your coop too! Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful chickens and nice coop!
They must be very happy in there.
I have Barnevelders too! Just love them. Yours are beautiful. So is your co
Stunning! Very nice birds and your chicken area is awesome!
Beautiful birds! Someone's put in some serious time and attention on the breed. Some of the best leg scaling I've seen on this site so far, too. I was beginning to think only Aussie chooks had normal leg scaling almost as a rule...
If I'm not very mistaken, there's nettle growing around their run. Is that deliberate as a dietary addition or a hedge?
Also, why are the images labelled as 'aracuana' when I look at them in a new window?
I notice they also have what appears to be a plant from the milkweed family, possibly dandelion, I'm not sure since the bird's in the way... Is that a deliberate run addition? I'm not sure about some of the other plants but they ring a bell, though not for poultry use offhand.
thanx fore the nice comments
yes in belgium we have also good leg collor deep yellow.
the nettle just grow in the coop i pull them out sometimes the grow verry fast.
the photos stand just in the map with the araucana chickens.
the plants are for some schadow en the bugs fly in the plants for the chickens the pull them out.
Very nice nettles too, healthy looking. I harvest them, dry them, and add them to tea, soup, stew, stir-fries, stuffing in roast birds, and also add it to chook feed as it's one of the most nutritious land plants, and I give it to all my animals. Recently I used it to help my cat with serious bladder issues. But being stinging nettles they can't eat them raw, however you might have non-stinging nettle, I'm not sure.
The milkweed family would likely be a good emergency liver detoxer for your birds if in need. I use them for my animals for that, but it's good for people too. I have planted some plants to attract bugs for chooks, too.
Quite nice looking birds. Thanks for sharing.
