    Took pics of these birds for different reasons. My black Ameraucana, Gypsy, has feathers on her head and neck, a rare occurrence! She seems to molt three times a year and mostly looks like a vulture.
    Nugget is camera shy, but today, seemed to pose for me--Jody, isn't she pretty?! My sweet gold Nugget is such a great broody mama.
    Olivia, who has been in internal laying torture with huge, fluid filled abdomen for months, has a small tummy now! We've drained probably two big mayo jars full of fluid from her in four sessions, but after the last 400 cc was removed, her tummy continued to shrink! You can see daylight underneath her now and though she will still pass on unless she expells the solid stuff from her oviducts, she can at least walk now.
    Zane was having a really nice sunbath in the cool air this morning so snapped a few of him.
    Shadow, the little banty princess, has her mouth open, big surprise, LOL. She's very vocal, as Cetawin can tell you.
    Last pic is Isaac and Maxie, Mouth of the South. She can bellow like a cow and for an hour sometimes.

    Aww, they're all beautiful pics Cyn! [​IMG] Thanks so much for sharing them with us. Nugget looks so curious and sweet. So great to hear she's a good mama.

    Awwww! Just look at Zane! [​IMG] Looks like he was really enjoying himself. I'm so glad to hear that he does still get out from time to time and can take in some fresh air, sunshine and a good old fashioned dust bath! You have to admire that boys determination to keep going. Lesser roosters would have curled up their toes and given up the fight a long time ago! [​IMG]

    Aaaah, Isaac! What's not to love about that beautiful boy?!? Sweet, drop dead gorgeous, great with is girls and loves his mama, all rolled into one completely perfect roo! [​IMG] I just wanna pick him and Zane up and cuddle the living daylights out of both of them! [​IMG]

    My, my! What an improvement for Gypsy! Yes, head and neck feathers are definitely much more pleasing to the eye than that whole vulture come turkey look! [​IMG]

    I just love all of your chickens Cyn. Such great personalities wrapped up in each and every one of them. Thanks for letting us pay a brief visit to them today! [​IMG]

    They all look wonderful Cyn and are very lovely! [​IMG] Mine all look dreadful right now and I would be ashamed to post any current pics of them. They are starting to molt and look horrid. My Zaner is looking great too! Hug him for me, will you? [​IMG]
