    Hard to believe these chickens were nothing more then scrawny pullets a few months ago. Everybody is filling out real nice, and the combs are plumping up! [​IMG] Here are a few pictures from today. It's been warm but today is a little cooler, still have the hose on a dribble for the plants and chickens to enjoy, but it hasn't passed 90 degrees over here thank goodness. [​IMG]


    Joon, my 25 week old Barred Rock. She still has fowl pox BUT her comb is looking much better then it has been. And still no sign of illness otherwise which is a good thing. She just has the scabbies which are healing now [​IMG]

    Monica, my 27-28 week old Dark Brahma. She is the closest to laying the first egg [​IMG] getting redder and she is nesting and squatting.

    Butternut, my splash Wyandotte was busy on the other side of the yard, so she missed out on this photo shoot hehehe!

    Beautiful! I especially love Monica, with her big grey fluffy butt. Great pick of the chicken scratch flinging gravel at the camera. Thanks for sharing!

    Yep! Silver penciled plymouth rocks, silver penciled wyandottes (I think..) and silver penciled cochins. In fact that pattern is just called silver penciled whatever breed LOL!

    I actually didn't want a Brahma because they are slow to mature and can be broody, neither of which I was looking for. But.. I fell in love with her looks and took her home, she has been a wonderful addition to my flock. Very sweet, VERY talkative! And she is a natural momma, she adopted two Wyandottes a month or two younger then she is. [​IMG]

    I might have to get a couple. I would like a good broody momma to raise chicks.

    They are great. I am so glad I got to experience this breed. I got Monica as a 5 month old, and she is quite personable and friendly to us. Also, her size is good because I never have to worry about her "flying the coop". She is a big, heavy, beautiful chicken [​IMG] and I adore her. I reccomend Brahma's, and I really want to get a nice Buff Brahma pullet sometime.
