    Here are the girls (and boys)- they came up to the gates because they see me coming!

    White Orpingtons on the left, Silkies on the right

    My beautiful head roo "Rooey"

    My Buff Minorca "Marigold" on the right, with one of the silkie juveniles being inspected by a friend

    the girls are so beautiful

    California White on the right, Buff Minorca on the left

    Our cockerel from Catdance Silkies' eggs (all the juvenile silkies here are from her eggs)

    pretty pullet

    little diva up-and-coming

    the flock is eating leftover hot dog buns, a little stale, and some "getting old but not bad yet" sugar snap peas

    one of my beautiful EEs on the left

    our handsome boy again- he is not dominant over the large hens, but he herds the silkies around

    Buttercup on left

    here is one that I thought was a cockerel but now not so sure

    Fuzzy lovable balls of fluff

    My Welsummers in the back

    The girls sharing a snack

    Gather 'round, everyone!

    Thank you to theoldchick for giving me the framework to do a photo essay- I tried to do what she did a little bit.

    I love looking at other folks' flocks and yours is no exception. What a lovely bunch of white Orps! Silkies are starting to grow on me, but I won't hatch silkie eggs or buy any. My friend is threatening to gift me with a few, because I do think hers are cute. Ya gotta see 'em doing the chicken thing LIVE to appreciate 'em, I guess. Or at least I do.

    I so miss the Pacific NorthWest. I think the Sierra Foothills is my chance to live somewhere a bit closer to those memories; Ponderosa pines, cedars, apple tree, lots of nearby forested area, and some similar ground-cover. I don't think I can grow rhodies there, but I might try!

    Thank you so much for sharing the photos of your flock!!
