I'm pretty new to the board but I wanted to share pictures of my new birds. They just came home a couple of weeks ago (a few of you were very helpful in answering the questions I had about transporting them home in my car! Thanks!). They are about 7 weeks old in these pictures. I bought them from a breeder with the intent to start my own small flock. Two hens and a rooster...the rooster is the lightest of the three (nice thing about the cuckoo marans, you can tell the sex by color, even as tiny chicks! Very convenient). Roo is the one furthest to the right: http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb242/BrookValley/DSCF0073.jpg Roo is behind the girls: http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb242/BrookValley/DSCF0067.jpg I'm in love! They are the coolest chickens ever (no, I'm not biased at all....).
