Poor chickens... they aren't exactly the smartest of all the animals! At least you have a sweet hen!Oh guess what my babie started laying this week.now for it start turning a darker color LOL.
Oh by the way she also decided that since it was 30 degrees outside and windy that she would roost on the fence instead of going in the coop, at least she is a sweetheart and we just picked her up and put her in the coop, but seriously
Quote: Bjorn has loads more experience than me. I agree with his assessment for the most part. The 2nd pullet in the picture isn't as nicely balanced as the 1st. More of her body is too far forward. Of course, it could be the angle of her standing in the picture.
Congrats!I've been wanting a welsummer but there were none available when I got my chicks. I bought a new girl this weekend and she needed a friend and a local guy had some young welsummers that he thinks might be almost ready to lay. She seems like a lovey and even though she is a hatchery bird she has lovely colours. This isn't such a great picture of her but it was the first day I had her and she was still a little freaked out by the car ride and relocation. One thing though, she has these "hairs" on her back, they look just like hairs. What are they?
