    I just wanted to share a pic of my beautiful Hedemora. No one else seems to be *into* them but I absolutely [​IMG] them.
    The sun is starting to go down but since they are in a designated special area they can't put themselves away so they decided to hang out in the corner...which is funny because when I went to get the camera the silver laced brahma wasn't there but he squeezed himself into the group. One of the roos is a bit smaller, and a bit *funny [​IMG] he has wry neck and would run crazy around the brooder and was a bit smaller than the rest(supplemented with vitamins). They replaced him for me and I probably won't use him for breeding just in case but he is roo #2 so hopefully nothing happens to roo #1 [​IMG] the replacement is also a cockeral but smoothe feathered and I prefer the fluffy ones. It is fun to watch his antics, he always tries to pick a fight with the bigger cockeral
    that is the bigger cockeral sitting on the brahma in the middle and the punky one to the left looking at me(well, he was looking at me when I went to take the pic [​IMG] )
    that is a smooth(regular feathered) pullet in the back right

    Quote:they are both....read you should have both, guess it's like the rumpless and tailed in araucana [​IMG]

    eta- they are also feather legged but the feathers stop and the ankle, no messy foot feathers

    They look like cross breeds to me.
