    I love all of them and that CW roo is breath taking!
  7. Is there something fishy in that pond or are my eyes tricking me? Almost looks goldfishy.

    Thank you for all the nice replies [​IMG] hcammack - the wyandottes are great birds. They are friendly - more so than the australorpes, but not as friendly as the orpingtons. And they are curious - not as much as the sussex but right up there. If I'm in the yard, the sussex supervise what I'm doing. The Wyandottes will supervise what the sussex and I both are doing. lol The roo is not the least bit aggressive. They were hatched this past May so I'm still waiting for eggs and the roo has a ways to go before he's totally mature and shows his full personality. So far it has been a pleasure to have them share the yard.

    Beardedchick - We had an algae bloom this summer. That's what you are seeing in the pond. The fish in there are large mouth bass, blue gills, perch, and bullheads. The pond is bigger than the photo shows - 14' at it's deepest. The dock is 10'x20'. It used to be a corn field.... a very soggy corn field. [​IMG]
