    I took some new pictures of some of my babies today, mainly my young trio of mille fleur d'uccles and bantam barred rocks, and I thought I'd share with you!

    Up first is Fabio, my barred rock cockerel. He's gotten much sweeter since we've had him thanks to daily cuddle sessions!

    Next is Fabio's girlfriend, who I just realized we haven't named. We've just been calling her Fabio's girlfriend, haha. She lacks a good tail, hers hangs down too much. Fabio's could be higher too, but its getting better as he ages. But we're going to be buying a couple nice pullets soon that will have better tails so we can improve on our breed.

    Here is Rambo, my little d'uccle roo. All my d'uccles are about 13 weeks old now, so he still has a lot of maturing to do, but his saddle feathers started coming in, and he's gotten very shiny neck feathers, I can't stop cuddling him! He's my little stud muffin, we hit it off as soon as he popped out of the shell(a full day before his siblings). He just started crowing! I'm still trying to get his little squeeky toy crow on tape.

    Next is Girly. Girly is, quite frankly, the sweetest, calmest pullet ever. She just stands there and looks up at you curiously when you come over, and holds perfectly still while you pick her up, and lays there making content sounds while you pet her. She's awesome, I can't get enough of her! Since she's so cute she gets three pictures posted ;P

    Last but not least is Freckles. She's gotten alot sweeter lately!

    Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

    Why city councilmen can't see that these are sweet pets, and not just 'agricultural' animals is beyond me! [​IMG]
