One of my hens:
Wow! They're both beautiful, but geez, that rooster is gorgeous!
Thank you! The roo's tail is a little ratty right now because he's been in a dirt pen while the coop is being remodeled...
I'll have some eggs available in a few weeks. I have a trio right now (one roo & two hens) but one of my hens is BROODY! LOL
Wow they are pretty!! Do you have problems with them flying? I hear they are great flyers.
Thank you! No, I don't really have problems. My runs are covered and I have lots of roosts at different heights. I could also clip a wing if I needed them to be grounded...
I've been told that they are an intelligent breed. Is this true? My one pullet is very wild but I do notice that she seems to be brighter than my other chicks.
Your birds are beautiful!
Quote:Yes, they are...the sumatra chicks are the first ones in the brooder to figure out the water/food on their own. They also just have an intelligent way about them.
Very nice birds!
My friend gave me some feathers from one of his sumatras to tie fishing flies with. OMG!!! They are amazing! The colors are brilliant, the stems are microscopic yet like steel, and they tie like a dream.
