- silver pencilled Wyandotte

- a light Sussex

I'm afraid I have zero good photos of the Maran- she is too interested in the camera! All the photos are like this:

Gorgeous pics Crystal. Thanks

It's not giving you an apple when I click on it. I'll figure that out and make sure you get them.

Here is a picture of my Barred Rock, Dos Cluqiues. Poor girl got taken by a coyote last week Behind her is my badly moulting Easter Egger, Ann Bolyn who also got taken, presumably by the same coyote. They were two of my sweetest chickens. I have more pictures at home I can post of a couple other species.

And just some not so well known chicken breed info; Easter Eggers are not a recognized breed while Ameraucanas are. The term 'Easter Egger' refers to any chicken who lays blue, green, or pink eggs. Many people who hatch and sell chicks will label them as Ameraucanas but they are actually just Easter Eggers.
Typically, you can tell that a chick is just an Easter Egger by the chipmunk type stripes. Ameraucana chicks will be a solid color, blue, black, or yellow (wheaton).
Just wanted to point this out since, when I was first getting into chickens, I decided I wanted true Ameraucanas but instead I ended up with Easter Eggers because the place who sold them didn't know any better and the breeder took advantage of that. If you are going to write a guide that talks about chicken breeds, it would be great if you could include this tidbit. That is all

Sorry, I don't mean to call you out, but if you didn't already know, that is a good example of an Easter Egger chick, not an Ameraucana...still a great type of chicken though! Mine are such sweethearts!

Oh boy! I have some lovely older Cochin ladies and a handsome Cochin Roo. Although I'm not sure he'll be a good breed standards example as he's lost his comb to frost bite....

I also have an Ameraucana hen and some EE chicks. But I can't post photos until I'm on a day off so Sunday at the earliest! I just love showing my chickens off!

This is from a few weeks ago. Barred Plymouth Rocks and Buff Orpingtons. They've grown quite a bit since then and are going outside to their pen tomorrow.

I had a good collection of photos taken today. I was quite happy with lots of them! To the point I wasn't sure I would share them all as it would be photo overload.

Then the power went out when I was uploading them... The computer has no recollection of them and photo bucket got a grand total of 3 of the chicken ones done. So I guess those will have to do!

Cochin lady.


Cochin lady and Cochin Roo.


Ameraucana lady.


Now I'm off to remember all the fabulous ones lost in 0111000101 land. Some were much better angles to show their bodies better. Especially the Roo as I was told he was show quality when I got him. Guess I'll have to take more pics (Like I ever need an excuse to!)

We're just approaching four weeks for these chickens. All 26 made the transition from brooder to barn nicely and have thrived well.
