I know I have been absent for the most part, but I have some new pics to share My last batch of chicks are really growing fast! I lost a few and had to cull 1, but I still have a lot! My Cochins have been the first to start laying... hopefully the other girls will follow suit Here are some new pics of the chooks Ameraucanas... except I think the one in the front on the left is one of my Araucanas. A Black and a Blue Ameraucana... those blacks are HUGE compared to some of the others... maybe they are roos My Wheaton Ameraucana.... I think this guy is a roo.... My Blue Wheaton Ameraucana... possibly a pullet??? My Araucana Roo Tufted tailed Araucana and one of my black Ameraucanas... both pullets??? My Showgirl Poppet I think she's soooo pretty And the mildest mannered chook I have My fav girl Roxie Her spots really came in nicely I think She has decided that she hates the other chickens... especially the two young roos that will not leave her alone (they may be chicken and dumplings sooner than later) Here she is being naughty and flying into the tree. Luckily she has taken to flying onto my head and shoulder now and NOT into the tree..... so that's good.
