    I was out early this morning in the barn (just after 7am). I took the camera so that I could show you some of my flock. They will be 20 weeks old tomorrow.

    Aunt Bea, Black Jersey Giant, if it helps to judge size that is a 12lb hanging feeder behind her.

    Henny Penny, Rhode Island Red, she is trying to lay in the feed box, another RIR was in her nest box

    No names, I can't tell them apart, white wyandottes

    Laf (Marquis de la Lafayette), Cuckoo Maran - I LOVE his big red comb and wattles.

    The following are some wide shots of various flock members as they moved around.

    More on the roosts.

    They are such fun birds. My kids enjoy them. My husband enjoys them. I love them.

    I have 4 barred plymouth rocks pullets and 1 cockeral, 4 cuckoo maran pullets and 1 cockeral, 5 white wyandotte pullets, 4 black jersey giant pullets, 4 partridge plymouth rock pullets, 4 buff orpington pullets, 2 white crested black polish pullet, 1 white crested white polish pullet, 1 silverlaced black polish cockeral, 4 rhode island reds. I think that is all. We culled this past week and I rehomed 3 sicilian buttercup pullets.

    My incubator is waiting for eggs. Hopefully I will be adding to this flock in in just under a month.

    When I left Georgia I had to rehome my flock. Now, in Virginia, I am beginning a new flock. I am learning again what I like and what I don't. I also am planning to hatch more of my own chicks in the future.

    Thanks for looking. [​IMG]

    They're beautiful! Your Laf reminds me of the Barred Rock cockerel I hatched and was going to keep as Hawkeye's "understudy", but then I decided to sell him. Do you remember Maverick? HUGE comb very much like that. And a sweetness that I love in a rooster. Your future new additions are packed and ready to go tomorrow morning!

    Beautiful birds! I, too, moved here to Virginia from Georgia. I lived about 30 miles north of Atlanta, little town called Ball Ground.

    Then you lived about an hour from me! I'm in Fannin Co. My friend Kate (helmstead) lives in Ball Ground as well. Virginia is beautiful, Priss, but you need to make a trip back here sometime.
