    OK! SO I only know of about three people on here that have Magpies or crosses and I know Cetawin and AuaoraSprings ( Sp?) have anaconas - BUT I WANT PICTURES!!!


    These have to be some of my favorite birds when it comes to coloring [​IMG]

    and honestly I dont know many people that have them.


    When I get a reply to this ill be a generous host and post some pics of my own little group of Pies and Pie Crosses.

    Right now I have a big magpie drake. I had a second, smaller drake but I gave him and his girls to a friend. Last year I bought 4 magpie ducklings at Rural King, and 3 of them got killed by predators. The one I have now is the last of them. I don't have any pics uploaded, but I'll try to get some later.

    These were my pair, their babies and one of the babies all grown up. The breeding pair and most of the babies went to other BYC members.

    I have a little silver (or blue?) Ancona hen. She used to be a lot lighter and has darkened up a lot lately. I used to think she was silver but now I am thinking she might actually be a blue... Here's 'Oddball':

    Our four Anconas and Magpies with tags above each picture.

    Here's one taken their first day with us (a few weekends ago), left to right:
    Tatiana (Chocolate Ancona), Anastasia (all white Magpie), Catherina (the Magpie hiding behind the others) and Lavadia (chocolate ancona):

    Another view of the gals:

    Hope you enjoyed them!
