    Thank you! They are all great! I wish the Barred Rock would lay some eggs though lol I must be the only one on BYC with a darn near 10 month old BR who is not laying [​IMG] she must think she is an easter egger lol!! They have two new sisters coming soon, a lavendar orpington pullet, and an olive egger pullet. Along with a new 8x6 coop coming this Sunday! Each hen will have 8 feet of coop space, plus all day free range time. Of course I do not spoil my birds! hahaha yeah right [​IMG]

    love them all, chicken addiction is... addicting!

    Thank you! Butternut is the sweetest thing ever. Total lap chicken, very sweet and talkative, and she loves kids. I think she is from Welp Hatchery, but I feel fortunate to have gotten such a sweetheart.

    Yes, Monica is the QUEEN of stink eyes. In fact.. I think Brahma's in general take the cake when it comes to those "Get that camera outta my face before I bust it open!" kinda looks haha. Monica especially doesn't like the paparazzi when she is molting.

    She actually came from Welp Hatchery I believe. She has a Blue Wyandotte coop mate who also came from Welp. The Blue Wyandotte was BEAUTIFUL as well, but she was a bully to Munk so I had to rehome her.

    Butternut is just a hatchery girl [​IMG] typically not suggested with Wyandottes because they rarely look good and all that, but the two I had both looked beautiful and Butternut LOVES people, the Blue did also, just didn't like my EE.

    If you want true quality wyandottes I suggest Foley or Paul's Poultry. Both have BEAUTIFUL wyandottes who come from known backgrounds so you have a bit more of a guarentee. They are expensive though [​IMG] 9.50 each for straight run chicks I believe, but worth it! If I had money and room I would get some also. But I really am fortunate with Butternut because she is so sweet, pretty and a reliable layer as well! [​IMG]
