    Visited my chooks today, had to clean out the coop and all that jazz, and figured I'd take some pics since I dont think I've taken pics of them in a couple months. I'd love to hear critiques of my birds. [​IMG]

    First up: Fabio 2.0, my bantam barred plymouth rock cockerel. I think he'll one 1 year old in... a month. Gotta double check. I love him [​IMG]

    This is my still unnamed bantam wheaten ameraucana pullet. She got best AOCCL at the last show which I wasn't expecting. I personally don't think she's that great so having her on champion row made me go [​IMG]

    This is Hera, my self blue d'Anver hen. She's about 3 years old now. Today she was being very very showy. Normally she doesn't spread her tail this well. She's one of the best self blue d'Anver's I've ever seen, but unfortunately her ex bf plucked out her entire beard! For some reason it still hasn't grown back, so maybe it won't until she molts again, which sucks because I really want to show her more!

    Lovely birds...... but what is that strange green stuff on the ground around them? My chickens must fear it because they promptly eradicate it wherever they are! [​IMG]

    Fabio is fabuloso!

    The wheaten looks like a Gertie

    The self blue is pretty and poor thing to have her beard plucked.

    LOVELY BIRDS!

    I was going to say the wheaten look regal enough to go by something like "Queen Harvest" (from the wheat in her varity) or Majesty.

    Demeter would be a nice name. She was the Greek goddess of grain.

    Edited to add that Fabio is fabulous...lol And the d'Anver is quite nice too.
