Here are some pictures that I took along with the ones posted yesterday.

Sue the Ameraucana.
Channel the buff Cochin. Look how fluffy!!

Little Bird is a mix between a Silkie hen and an OEGB rooster. He actually turned out beautiful! Look at the rainbow he's got on his back... He got (from his mother) five toes, a walnut comb, a beard/muffs, feathered feet, and a small crest. From his dad, he got the normal, slick pretty black feathers.

Going's On

Merry Christmas!

We didn't have a white Christmas here this year... we seldom do! Our Christmas felt more like late September than late December. I know that I haven't posted in a long time, so here are some picture updates!

We Three Queens... the silver-laced Wyandotte trio, Sylvia, Cynthia, and Mi-mi

Pepper the Barred Rock struts her stuff

Follow the leader!

Little Red- Flamingo wanna-be

Foster Pets

Our friends who own chickens and rabbits went to Florida several days ago, and left us in charge of some of their animals. As of now (and until they get back), we 'own' 3 Cochin bantams and 1 Silkie hen, 6 teenage-aged chicks, and three rabbits. Here are some pics!

The Cochins & Silkie

The roo looks like Sergui's twin!!

And she looks like Henrietta's twin! Of course, we bought them all at the state fair from the same people... they may be twins!

One of the rabbits...

Dottie the Rex (they are SOOOOO soft!!)

Why, hello there!
