    You have an awesome little flock there! It's so nice but rare to see someone with different and interesting chickens in their flock. [​IMG]

    Also, I notice most UK and Australia based people to have Lavender Araucanas over other colors. . . Are they seriously that common?

    Thanks all [​IMG] yeah i like having lots of differant types, but im trying to focus on breeding my sablepoots, which would be easier if they hadn't stopped laying a year ago lol

    and yeah the araucanas are a lot more commen over here, i know lots of places where they have eggs for sale, and lavender appears to be the most commen and wanted colour [​IMG]

    I thought this was a nice one of Pootle's tail, as a side note i got him for free when he was 3 months old, from a lady that no longer wanted him [​IMG]
