    Hey everyone! I haven't been on a whole lot lately, so I thought I would show you some of our feather babies.

    First, for the color question... I hatched this little sweetie out of a BBS set, and she has come out almost self blue/lavender-esque. Is this even possible or is she just a really really poor quality blue? She is a purplish blue color and has NO lacing. Here are some pics...

    Here by demand is a pic of darling Tripod, the Three Legged Wonder...

    Her tail is a little skewed as you can see, but other than this she is perfectly healthy, and is laying eggs without problems.


    Here are some pics of my blue rooster. He isn't extraordinarily handsome, but he has nice lacing. He is going to the feedstore this Teusday unfortunately, unless some wonderful BYCer who is close enough to pick him up or meet me somewhere would like him.

    Here are my splash roos, Valentine and Versace. (Valentine is the older one)

    This is Peanut, whom some of you may remember. When he hatched, he only took up half of his shell-space, and didn't have his pecking instinct for three or four days. He was very very tiny for several weeks. But as you can see, he has more than made up for it in the last few weeks!

    The rest are just pics of our general flock...

    Thought I would add some pics of a few of my other pets...

    Posiedon the Chinchilla. I had originally named him Hermes, which suited him much better, but whenever I told anyone his name they always thought I had said a certain specific virus name, so I changed it. [​IMG]

    Debbiraymond: Thank you! We are as in love with them as ever.

    Huestis Farms: The Polish has the funniest personality too! We named her Silly because of what a goofball she is.

    GopherBoy: Yes, I am SO glad I didn't give up on her. She is doing great, and as I said, giving eggs regularly. I even think her funny tail is kinda cute! I wouldn't trade her for anything.

    Huestis Farms: I have nicknamed him Posie, just because Posiedon didn't really suit his personality. He is the sweetest little fella, he even gives me kisses and barks when I am not in the room for too long a period, or when I have just fallen asleep, LOL.

    Jordan: Now return the favor and post some more pics of Geico! [​IMG]

    Acre of Blessings: Are you asking me or Debiraymond? If you are asking me, then the Sheltie's name is Luke, and the little girl in the last picture's name is Bear.



    Thanks for the responses everyone! Does anyone have an idea about the coloring of the pullet in the first pic? She is very typie in every was except her color, and I would love to know if I have a Lavender strain, or if that is even possible! LOL
