I wanted to share some pics of my beautiful birds. I am so in love with them, they are wonderful. I swear sometimes that it's like being the parent to 40+ kids. Some listen and are great, others pretend you aren't talking to them, others flat out ignore you, some disobey, etc. But I love each and every one of them. All my birds have such unique personalities. Everyone in the family has their particular favorites. Here are my birds: Here is Goldie my blind chicken. She was pecked badly and plucked too before I got her. She can't see out of the eye facing the camera and has limited vision in her good eye. You kind of have to be right in her face in order for her to see you. She is my older DD's favorite and will actively seek Katie out and asked to be picked up and snuggled. She is suppose to be a standard sized GLW but I think her growth was stunted because she is 21 weeks old and while she is not as small as bantam, she is nowhere near as big as my SLW's. Here is Pebbles, my bantam Mottled Cochin girl that I got from ShellyD at the BYC meetup in Indianapolis in August. She and her mate Bam Bam are so sweet and were welcomed into my flock. They have adjusted quite well. Here are two of my roosters, my big Cuckoo Maran (or at least that's what he's SUPPOSE to be, is named Mystery, and my little bitty guy is my Sebright Pip. Pip was following me around and posing for the camera. Every time I took a picture he would crow afterwards, lol. Here is my handsome boy Pepsi. He is, at best guess, a Sebright mix. He has a HUGE straight comb but everything else about his screams Sebright. He has such a sweet disposition and he really likes my mom. He likes to jump up and sit with her when she comes to sit out by the coop. He was fascinated by the camera last night. This is my gorgeous girl Sir, she's a SLW. For a long time we thought she was a he. The comb got big and bright fast, and then it slowed and we now know that it's a girl. But the name stuck and she answers to it. She is our best looking SLW. Anyone think she has any show possibility? Here is my Silkie boy Hector. Pardon his bad hairdo, we've had a lot of rain lately and he loves mud puddles. Here is my best girl Petunia. She is the head of all the hens and is such a wonderful bird. She seeks me out when I am out there and will walk along beside me clucking and cooping to me. I'll talk to her and she answers. She'll come over to be picked up too. She is one of my favorites. Here is Jersey, our Australorp girl. She's still people shy and my least friendly, but she's a good girl. My mom loves this picture. She says it looks like Jersey was posing for me. Here is a pic of some of them. They all dashed so fast in opposite directions when I let them out that it was hard to get this pic! This is me and one of my Splash Cochin girls, her name is Dora. Here is Priscilla, my bantam White Cochin girl. I got her, Elvis, and Misty from Babymakes5, another BYC'er. I love all 3. Elvis comes to greet me when I come home from work and he follows me around the yard as I garden and do things. He kept me company yesterday as I was cleaning out my car. Here is my only EE girl, Misty. I have fallen in love with her colors and gentle personality. I want more EE's now cause of her! And lastly, here is my handsome boy Elvis. He is still a little shy and would prefer to follow me around as opposed to getting picked up. He invited himself right into the house the other day. We don't mind, he's a good boy. Hardly crows at all, and so far, never in the house. He prefers to hang out on my patio then out near the coop with the other chickens. I hope everyone likes my kids. They are my pride and joy. I'll be taking more pics real soon, and I will share!
