    Mama's babies are three weeks old now.

    Thor, Jr. (TJ). I think she (? [​IMG] ) will be a beautiful hen someday. She definitely inherited her dad's heavy foot feathering.

    Cash. There's no doubt about his gender, whatsoever. [​IMG]

    Thor, Sr. is getting older and his fertility is going down. Hopefully everyone will mind their Ps and Qs, otherwise, there may a choice to to make. [​IMG]

    They are all precious. I especially like the one of Mama with chick Rowdy. I don't understand how chickens with feet feathering manage to keep from having all kinds of gunk "boots". I guess they just spend a ton of time grooming their leg feathers? They are very pretty, but it just looks so inconvenient!!

    Quote:My brahmas are nearly three years old now and they've never had a problem with their feet getting excessively dirty. My birds free range and we have a fifth season of the year known as mud season.

    Here's a pic of TJ's dad when he was a chick, along with another dark brahma. See what I mean about the heavy foot feathering?
