The Three Amigos

These guys flew a pen of 40+ chicks, and never looked back. The just free range around the house. I guess they're volunteering to be the early warning system should the raccoons come calling...

Me too!

These guys are really sweet, the EOs' personality really shines when they are allowed to free range. Pen raised EOs are friendly, but free range EOs are the best!

I've got six age groups I'm trying to watch for selection - these guys are 10 weeks, they're from the 'two-day olds' I took to the swap May 4th. There's also 12, 14, 16, 18wks, and Mike's two birds at 25.5 weeks. It makes it hard to judge who is shining and who is not.

And if I remember correctly, late season chicks might not fill out as well (before winter) as the early birds, putting them at a disadvantage.

Re: The Three Amigos

You have a really light pullet too MD. I hadn't seen any like that here until this year. I like the look of the cockerel and honey pullet so I hope they beat the odds and avoid the raccoons until selection time.

Re: The Three Amigos

These guys are from my original pairing (Pen 1 with Black and three hens) The light girl is the daughter of the pullet that went broody last summer. The momma, who is colored up the same as NP's Annie, hasn't gone broody yet this year.

Re: The Three Amigos

My free range group seems to like getting into the garage the best! Probably because I come out of there bearing treats and they end up with them :do?:
