    They're getting bigger, heavier, fuzzier!

    Two of the five are now laying, with a third young lady talking of her plans to lay soon. (Fancy, the lovely lady on the left, is the one that hasn't started laying yet. ;) )

    Frou-frou the blue splash Marans now demands her nightly visit to the house. She paces at the gate until I open it up, and then she runs out and waits patiently for me to pick her up.

    "Who, me..?"

    [​IMG]



    She Who Sleeps Standing Up and her sister, the partridge Plymouth Rocks, follow me around and then squat if I turn to see what they want. :rolleyes: She Who laid her first egg three days ago, and I have gotten two more eggs from her since!

    "You're welcome..."

    Fancy, She Who's 'twin', has been eying the boxes and talking like she'll be laying soon. Today, rather than posing pretty for a picture, she decided suddenly that she wanted to be petted and coddled.

    "Who could say no to this?"

    Pretty Poggy the speckled Sussex has made no attempt at nesting or laying eggs, and instead continues to grow into one heck of a big bird (and EAT like a growing bird, too!)!

    "I'm lucky I'm so pretty."

    And finally, Iddy Biddy-bird, the first egg-layer of the five, has been getting into trouble, discovering things, exploring, and making her place in the flock. (She's supposed to be a speckled Sussex as well, but I think she's something new and unique--a speckled Biddy-bird, if you will.)

    Ah, it appears I forgot to add their breeds to my post. :rolleyes: Apparently I was in a hurry to finish.

    Darling Frou'f is a blue splash Marans. :) They're all from Meyer Hatchery. I'll edit the first post with the rest of their breeds.

    Pretty birds! Many of the breeds I used to have before I started raising Seramas came from Meyer too. Unfortunately Meyer doesn't sell Seramas :(
