What a nice reminder!
Thank you very much. I really adore this breed!
He is a standard Salmon Faverolles
I had planned on doing the hatch, I wasn't sure if I had said it outright lol!
Such a beautiful pic.!
When I first scrolled down...I thought it looked like a photo shopped half opened eye with the frost as the eye lashes.
I do like my chickens/breeding stock to be tough.
It's still dumping on us! But....
Thanks . And good to know they are weak sometimes, glad I have some nice healthy ones to cross with them.
So cute! Now I gotta get some Salmon Faverolles
Ok...I managed to survive my chores. After surviving the ice, the male rabbits had set a trap for me!
They had dug out under the ends of a piece of 2x4 that's in their pen and covered it with straw.
Didn't see it and stepped on the one end...just about landing on my head.
Came at noon to look at the chick and...THERE WAS NO CHICK!!
He had had enough of the tray confines, he jumped ship and was out gallivanting amongst the eggs below.
So here's the chick 2.5 hours ago...
And apparently he's red? Different but equally as good.
So I stuck him in his own stationary cup to keep him contained.
(And yes...the blue tray and white cup are sitting on top of the other eggs in case anyone's curious.)
But then I heard more peeping!
If you notice in the tray...the second egg from the left has broken shell towards the bottom!
So I turned it over and ta da...a chick is zipping!!
(and the egg IS actually green. It looks tan on here...lol!!)
So like everyone says...be patient.
I think someone asked what type of bird the mom is...she's "supposed" to be an Easter Egger.
Bought two bunches as chicks. She has the colored legs and ear gear but she's buff colored???
And these two groups have cushion combs...looks like someone took silicone and put a glop on each head.
I'm also getting buff colored chicks out of my blue egg laying pair.
They have more upright combs. Both seem equal in toughness, growth and temperament.
Stunning picture! This is one I took last winter of ice on an oak leaf.
And if you think chickens are hard to photograph, try bees! But when you get one like this, it's worth it.
I thought the same when I first saw it.
Happy, you know I love your bee photos!
Thanks! It's so incredibly difficult to take pictures of bees! I'm eagerly awaiting the first bloom and warmer weather, so I can start getting into my hives again!
