    I got several new chickens last week.

    Goldie, my 6 y/o Serama hen hatched off 7 babies. All the eggs hatched. This is her first hatch ever!!

    Baby Sarge, daddy to the new chicks.

    Wellington, our new 4 month old Welsummer roo. I got 2 hens with him too. I already had 3 hens of the same age, so yeah!

    New golden bantam Phoenix and silver hen. I had 6 but 4 got out in the early morning and were imediatly eaten by something.[​IMG]

    A bantam buff Cochin roo, Snuffy. We are keeping him, at least for a little while.

    Snuffy's wife (We already had her and she was our only Cochin) Fluffy. I don't know how they will cross, but I hope he can put more "Fluff" on the chicks then Fluffy has.

    A resident Indian Blue Peacock

    My friend's EE roo, Sunshine with the full brother to the new Serama chicks. He is 5 months old now. Sweety Pie was incubated. He is TINY!! I am debating keeping him or not.

    A D'Cuu?? roo. He is going to be sold tomorrow. He is very friendly though.

    Here he is with a black Dutch, who will be sold tomorrow too.

    I love all of your pictures [​IMG]. I am wondering what type of chickens are the black and white laced hens in the picture with Snuffy's wife, Fluffy. Such pretty lacing!

    Goldies babies are soooo cute! Baby Sarge is one cool looking Roo. He almost looks like a patchwork quilt.
    Great pictures!! Mine must be camera shy. Every time I bring out the camera, they turn their heads away- IF they are even staying still emough for a pic.

    I have raised a lot of Seramas and non ever had feathering. Don't know where that came from. Interesting.
    We love our little roos. Baby Sarge is beautiful for sure. I had a white Serama roo who I LOVED but sold him when we moved out here. Goldie and Baby Sarge got to come with us. I am so glad about that.

    This is Snowball. He was a beauity.
