    Miranda is my only Lt. Brahma, June is my EE (probably a Salmon/Blue Wheaten cross we've deduced, possible breeder mistake), Riley, Barred EE and Gracie, Delaware. And some glimpses of a few others, like poufy-headed Olivia, and Reba, my only remaining hatchery RIR who is about 4 years old.

    Beautiful birds!!

    That Light Brahma reminds me of the one we had when I was a kid, we called her "Granny".

    Love your birds! Especially the interesting blue wheaten color - Never seen that on an EE, and it's quite pretty!

    The breeder that June came from was working on the new Salmon color, but also had Blue Wheatens, so I'm figuring a Blue Wheaten roo got to a Salmon female. She was in an egg marked "Salmon", but obviously isn't that color.

    Very pretty birds. The light brahma girl is the prettiest of course. [​IMG]

    I knew you'd like Miranda, Kat. Here is my BR, Amanda, who hasn't had a pic in ages due to a prolonged molt. She is my best barred BR hen.

    Gypsy is also at the end of her molt.

    Nora, who is my only skittish Ameraucana. Well, she does want to be picked up on rare occasions, but if you don't pay attention when she wants it, she bites.

    I try! The molt this year made alot of very thin birds, but some of them are getting their weight back as well as feathers. I still have two or three very bare ladies, though, but they are getting extra protein daily. Riley is a stocky young lady, isn't she?
