    The weather in Florida is just glorious right now. Low humidity, highs in the low 80's, lows in the 60's. Its just a wonderful time to be here, and a great time to sit outside with the chickies and take some pictures. So heres some pics of my chickens today, blue and black rocks, wheaton Marans (from Katy), and a couple of cuckoo marans.

    I have never been much of a Marans fan (their looks, anyway), but I really like the wheatens! Beautiful birds, Kathy.

    Hey, Kathy, how are the temperaments/personalities of the Blues as opposed to the Barred Rocks?

    They are just very mild mannered chickens. No fights, no squabbles, everyone gets along. The roos that I have now, the splash and the black, are very nice. I dont have them together because they fight each other, but I can go in each pen and neither have ever given me one aggressive moment. When I catch them and pick them up, they just sit there. Thats one thing I really like about them, is their mild disposition.
