    Thank you BYC member Birch Run Farm it was not easy getting him here but he arrived saftely last week and got his bath today. I am sick and my wonderful sister took ds for the night and should be in bed but I have a huge list of stuff to do and Alabaster's bath was at the top and made me feel better. I blew dried him until he was 80-85% dry and then he was bored with it lol. He is back in his cage with a heat lamp, I cant wait until his quarantine is done!

    He even got to crow for my SG and silkies whom I have decided to keep in the kitchen for the next 2 weeks so they will get more used to my ds and I.

    Anyway here he is in during and after. Isnt he beautiful I just love him and so sweet too!

    He is magnificent! I want a rumpless! DF thinks they're not pretty.

    Your boy is beautiful. How did he tolerate his bath? I have two EE bantams hens that are perma-muddy from our wet winter.

    Alabaster definitely loves attention! How did he like the hair dryer? He's a good boy and will take good care of any girls you give him. Just give them time to visit between a fence for awhile and then put him out with them. There will be some squabling but it will work out.

    I've never had a grumpy araucana, maybe because most don't have tails, but the boys generally get along with each other pretty well.

    I am sure he can't wait for his quarentine to be over either!

    he seemed to love his bath and the blow dryer I think he is a great roo and love him very much already. I have 3 rumpless araucanas pipping right now so by summer he should have some friends his own kind. Until then I know he will be happy with my ladies they are all very sweet [​IMG]

    Well Alabaster survived his quarantine with no issues what so ever and is happily amongst all 12 lovely ladies. He is a little rough with them and some are balding, lol but dont seem to mind, I am hoping he gets the swing of things soon. They did however pick his tuffs off lol so now he is sort of tuffless but still quiet handsome. I hold him and pet him everyday and he is around my ds and a perfect gentleman, I am very happy with him and think he is as well.
