  7. Lol, Drumstick? Is your Dad REALLY purple?
    Ang, I'd love to see updated chick pics! I've only hatched whites and splashes so far from that pen (and I sold the chicks from the 1st hatching when they were 4 days old) so I'd love to know how they're looking.
    I think so too, Mark! I need to get with you about that website I started 'way back when' and couldn't load pics too. I'm using a diff puter now --- maybe I can try again if you're still up for talking me thru it [​IMG]

    ...still waiting for the rest of the pics to load...

    That is great Lisa. It makes me feel good when I see the fuzzy feet.

    Here they are Lisa! They're starting to get their feathers so they look a bit scruffy. They are a week and half years old...I think. [​IMG]
    Some of the blues
    Another blue
    Probably the best white one, feathers on all 5 toes, perfect toe separation and nice topknot. [​IMG]
    Here he/she is again.
    This one I'm a bit confused about...I don't think you have buff do you? Just weird coloring.

    PS...these chicks were hatched out of eggs from Lisa's flock. She packed the eggs wonderfully and is a great person to deal with. [​IMG]
