    Nugget was in the pen with the ladies and the two little roos when I got home. I guess the gate blew open and Nugget and Sparkle decided to visit. Since the two Turken roos and Splashdown went to live at a new home, the entire atmosphere has been different around the yard. Everyone is more relaxed and calm. I didn't realize how aggresive the brothers Turken were and upsetting everyone. Nugget and Buffy are talking more, not sure how Woo feels about that!

    Standing near Buffy hoping I think, but she looks like she's playing hard to get too:

    this is kinda off topic, but what kind of fencing is that in the background...looks like some kind of fence panels...how tall is it? I'm asking because I'm getting ready to redo a chicken coop/yard

    Those are my X-pens for my big dogs. They are between 3 and 4 ft tall I believe. I have them tacked to the playhouse coop so I can undo them and move them. I have two of the pens, one comes around from the left, the other from the right then they fasten together where they meet. They also have the small access doors. It's not a permanent solution, but great for temporary if you move it around a lot.

    My goodness! That Nugget is a whopper! Are all of those hens standard size breeds? I can't even imagine a roo that big! [​IMG]

    There is a mix in that pen of a few Bantams and Standards. Fuzzy Butt, Red, and Buffy are Standards, and the Polish, but the Polish are still growing. Little Charlotte, Steven's little girl is in there and looks like a new hatch almost near Nugget. She's between the Polish and the fence, she even looks small next to the Polish! Buffy is big girl, she's one of my bigger hens.

    I love those pens. When I travel they fold flat and I have the roof panels for them too. Hook two together and you have a huge area.

    [​IMG] I love your roo. He's so big you could saddle him and rent him out as a children's ride.

    I can't have big or even standard birds where I live, so I'm avidly watching the Ongoing Adventures of Nugget. Thank you for sharing them!

    You are most welcome, I'm actually getting my hopes up that he and Buffy end up an "item". I think the offspring those two sweeties would have would be beautiful!
