    Some of you really liked Riley's looks so here are some pictures of her from today. She and Gracie are being slowly integrated into the main flock and eventually, they'll go to the Delawares with Isaac and the five girls over there. Yes, I'm considering putting Riley in with Isaac since she will lay green eggs and there will be no accidental collecting of hers when I collect for a buyer. It's so interesting how some get yellow legs and some get the white ones with slate wash down the fronts. Riley's sister, now owned by sportsterchick, has white and she and her brother got yellow. (don't even look at my poor Gypsy in that nest--she is just starting to get feathers back on her head and neck from her horrible molt. Gypsy and Riley don't know it, but they're half sisters. Mama is blue Ameraucana, Charlotte)

    Tux, one of the Poufy-Head Sisters, is making sure that Miss Fern watches her step! Fern is 20 weeks and Tux is almost 3 years old. Fern is a chunky thing, like her mama, Ivy, used to be, before her egg issues.

    Poor gypsy. Your barred girl is really looking good. Yesterday I started intergrating my Splashes. They are doing great. They are still a bit people shy. I guess the blues and splashes are like that. Take care Gloria Jean

    Thanks! Gloria Jean, Gypsy is getting quills down her neck now! She may actually look like Gypsy again soon! Heck, I may not even recognize her except by her "I want you to pick me up" antics. [​IMG]

    She is very beautiful! I love the way, the further down her back you get, the more black appears. Congrats on a beautiful bird!! [​IMG]
