Choctawgal's EOs, all grown up now! (plus a couple baby pics too)

Hi Friends!

I went out on photo safari today, between the rain ans show squalls... you can't tell it from the sun I caught, though!  LOL 

I'm really happy to share these pictures! 

I'm especially humbled, and wish to thank their egg-father for the kind gift of several EO eggs, many months ago when I was devastated by both a coyote raid (23 hens!!!!) and heatstroke of several newly turned out chicks--both events in rapid succession.  Of all my babies, they are my pride and joy. (Don't tell the Araucanas!)  Thank you again.  :wine:

Can you believe I didn't get a single picture of the two RWs?  I guess I'll have to do that tomorrow, weather permitting.

I'll start with my two "outliers," PeeWee and Glorria. 

PeeWee turned out to be *very* light colored Marraduna.  He's also the little one who grew out of being wry necked.

Here is his baby picure.

All grown up, both sides:

This is Glorria, I thought was Gorria, until I saw Monika's gorgeous Gorrias!  Now I'm thinking a red mille?

Here's the two of them, mugging for a picture.

Mary Ann, Marraduna, is sweet and mellow.

Here's my pride and joy, Gregory (Peck).

First, a baby picture.

All grown up, both sides and a "Whutcha doin, Mom?"

Here are a few of my other kids:

The Araucana roo is "Boy George," the d'Uccle is "Papa Peetie" because he has adopted a couple batches of chicks as "Mr. Mom" so far.

Papa Peetie and his 1st brood:

Africa is an Ameraucana...  her baby picture.  (She reminds me of an African Grey Parrot!)

Finally, this is "Boomchickaboomboom"  (I didn't name her...)  She's one of my Sizzle kids... and I think the prettiest, yet.

I hope you enjoy them!

Beautiful birds! Glorria is one pretty pullet. I'd love to see more pics of her when she gets her point of lay plumage. :love:

:love: Wonderful pics and flock.  :net:  Thanks for posting them.  MaryAnn looks like a Blondie.  Glorria is really nice, very little black in the mottling.  I love the roo up close pic.  they look like the same temperamant as ours :thumbs:  Cool names too.  That sizzly girl is gorgeous!   And I think Papa Peetie is a Sweetie!  :thumbsup:

Jenn what lovely birds you have :love:  Gregory Peck is a handsome fellow and I can see why he is your pride and joy.

I also LOVE your Sizzle her colour is beautiful, all mine are black/silver, and you "Mr. Mom"  Pappa Peetie is so cute with his little clutch of chicks :thumbsup:

Thanks for posting them :jumping:

PeeWee is really interesting looking. very handsome.
your Glorria girl looks a lot like my Dottie. She is redder and millie. It's not quite the deer color because her bloomers are red not cream colored.
