    [​IMG] While out taking pictures of our auraucana girl that just started laying, I snapped some general pictures of the flock. They looked so happy, and that made me happy....so I thought I'd share the joy [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone [​IMG]

    They are a happy group, they love the range of the yard and the surrounding woods (some more than others).

    We haven't had need to butcher any of them yet. I'm a veg, so that decision is up to my meat-eating husband.

    Mr. Peepers is a speckled sussex. Wonderful rooster with a very sweet personality and curious too. I've found that to be generally true of all my sussex, in fact one of the hens ALWAYS comes running to me the minute I walk out the back door (unless she has youngsters and is occupied tending them).
