Thanksgiving Day Pics

The Chicken Mafia were out roaming about today as I was wandering around with my camera looking for some good shots. I figured I'd pop them up here so you guys could see how they've come along. These EO's were hatched in April, so that makes them just under 6 months old. Their eggs are starting to increase in size now, as they started with very tiny pullet eggs. I usually get 3 eggs a day from the three girls. My poor black Penny Priscilla has started to moult again so no eggs from her since a couple of weeks. Its a shame too because she lays smokin' huge jumbo eggs that are DELICIOUS! Still no eggs from my other birds that hatched here in July (some Orpingtons, Plymouth Rocks and Easter Eggers).

Ham and 'Niller leading the girls out to torment the other birds in the coop next door. I told you they were chicken mafia!

This is a good shot of 'Niller (Vanilla is his name but everything seems to get shortened). He is nice and broad, very friendly but white legs and beak.

C'mon dad! Let us in the garden! There's Kale in there!

Re: Thanksgiving Day Pics

Love the :pics:!  Those are super nice roosters.  They are just what I think the shape should be and I know the summer sun has faded them a little.  You know my only birds that found the wild grapes falling off the vine growing on our TV antenna were my EOs.  They are relentless when they know there is food somewhere, or you are carrying a bread bag! :whistle:

My black pennies are molting right now so no jumbo purple eggs for a while now.  One looked like a sea urchin the other day..... but is getting over it now!   http://www.scielo.br/img/revistas/rimts … 3fig01.jpg

You'll get your eggs back, they lay well in the winter compared to many breeds

Re: Thanksgiving Day Pics

OH WOW! I had a hatch of 22 eggs in the bator for the last 3 weeks, just pullet eggs on a lark hoping something would happen. I candled them the other day and thought I might have 2 viable eggs, but they went to 21 days and I was planning to unplug and give up today. Imagine my thanksgiving surprise when we woke to find a new fuzzy yellow EO chick peeping and stumbling about the bator! Also, egg #2 was pipped and hatched this evening. We have our very first two EO babies on Riverbend Farm! :excited: What an awesome thanksgiving surprise :love:

The whole family is eggcited! Pics of our babies to follow when they come out of the bator and go in the broody box tomorrow!
