    Aww! [​IMG] Thanks so much for the pics! I love seeing how their babies turned out..

    I just lost my whole flock (except for my 2 males) from my dogs getting into my backyard and killing them. I miss my babies.. [​IMG]

    The are very skittish until you get a hold of them, then they calm down. We have one that is a nibbler, have to watch your fingers with him. They get very vocal as soon as they here us out side the pen.

    No problem [​IMG] about three weeks ago I lost 5 to dogs, one was a broody that was yanked off her nest. Took two hours in the pouring rain to find everyone else over the countryside. I understand how soul breaking it is to lose an animal.

    What's with the dogs lately? [​IMG] I lost 8 of my 9 to my neighbor's pit bull on Thanksgiving. She climbed on top of the night pen and went through hardware cloth to get to them.
