    Main flock was let out to roam a bit. Most are in various stages of molt, but not too bad. This is not everyone, by any means-they were scattered to the four winds, not having been out in several days.

    Gypsy, with actual feathers on her head! She seems to molt three times a year and is bald much of that time. She's 4 yrs old. Picked up that rabbit cage to use as a small brooder for $10 at a yard sale and it came with a rabbit bottle attached.

    Nora, then Snow, sisters out of Cree Ameraucana lines. Believe they are about 3 1/2 now:

    Alice and Neela, blue Rocks from halo. I think these girls are about 2 years old now, but have lost track. Great layers.

    Miranda, who, along with my Buff Brahma, Caroline, is about to turn 5 years old:

    Smoky, several days post crop surgery. Actually, had to open her up two days after the first one. She's one tough girl.

    Thanks! Like your avatar.


    Got a shot of a couple more. My banty lavender Cochin, Shadow who is 3 1/2 yrs, my almost six-yr-old Buff Orp Sunny with RIR Reba in the background. Reba and Sunny are the only two remaining hens of my ten originals left.

    Looks like a beautiful autumn day there, Cyn! I am sure they all enjoyed their romp in the timber!

    They all look great! Hoping for a speedy recovery for Smoky! [​IMG]

    Quote:No, Miss Kathy, he's in molt. We must let him come into full glory before doing a photo shoot!



    Thanks, all. They're a good bunch.

    Adding some pics of Nugget and her Delaware chick she is raising. "He" is 2 1/2 weeks old-at least, I'm pretty sure this one is a cockerel. Haven't had a little Dellie around here in awhile, but that comb is making quite the entrance, isn't it? Nugget is happy again. She loves being a mama.

    **Sadly, for those who don't know, Smoky did not make it. She passed away on Monday morning. Poor girl was a real fighter.
