Caramel and Butterscotch

I think these babies are 5 weeks old. Caramel and Butterscotch just seemed to fit for names for these two pullets, they are just so sweet! Both are black horse ranch EOs.

Caramel will jump or fly from anywhere to visit which can be stressful!

Butterscotch is a bit more reserved but still a friendly little girl.

The two on my lap.

Caramel has some side sprigs. Butterscotch has white legs. I intend to keep them both!

Re: Caramel and Butterscotch

nice girls.  You just wait until they are full grown and want to sit on you.  I like my chicken calm but I don't have any that fly up on me which is just fine with me.

Lovely PG, I'd keep them too :). Isn't it funny how many "knee". And "foot" pics we get? You have to lean way back to take them so they aren't out of focus!  Btw. I have turkey who does the fly on your shoulder thing- cute now- but what happens when he's 45 lbs????

:cheer: I know I thought that when I saw the pics!  And how cute the pullets were of course! =D

I love that fuzz too...if you had that little bit of leftover fluff on you, they'd have it pecked off in no time!

Re: Caramel and Butterscotch

Funny how some people call this stage the ugly stage, part feathered out part baby fuzz. You know you are in the presence of chicken people when all you get is the awww cutes! BHR mentioned a lack of females successfully hatching. I only have 3 of 9. The other girl is very grey. Anybody want to select for grey EO wow do I have lots and some very friendly and nice looking too! Several of the roosters are grey and white with almost no brown. Actually even the ones with brown have too much grey ( to my eye) and some clavell combs and mostly white legs too. It will be fun selecting and improving on these guys ( while keeping friendly as a top priority) over the next few years!

Re: Caramel and Butterscotch

Oh and yes, how far back you can hold the camera and still see the view screen is an extremely important skill to have when photographing EOs!

Re: Caramel and Butterscotch

It is interesting to see the colouring and features in all the branches of the family tree!  I agree on selecting friendlies :thumbs:
