    Pie looks just like my Annabelle. It will be interesting to see if they end up looking alike.

    Nice pics, thanks for sharing.

    The Aruacana we acquired is black and white, and is a pullet! We'll be keeping her. We've named her "Little Feather" because she sprouted ONE tail feather, but then never anymore! I will get a pic of her tomorrow, I thought I had gotten her in the bunch...guess not. She's a doll though!

    Cashmere...we have Ameraucanas and Easter Eggers, and one Araucana (not pictured yet lol)

    Thanks for looking![​IMG]

    Edit: We've noticed that our "Pie" has a very slight beak problem. Not crooked, but looks like the lower beak is too long for her to close her mouth completely. There's a very slight, but noticeable, gap between them. Anyone ever had this? How can I trim the lower beak so the two halves can close?

    If the gap in her beak is slight, then I'd just leave it alone. They are still growing. The upper beak will grow out more, and *may* allow the gap with the lower beak to close entirely.
