Old and Young

I brought the blizzard babies out for some late evening sunshine the other day. It had been too windy earlier. It's funny how they segregate themselves as they move about the yard. I guess birds of a feather do flock together.

The Oklahoma trio from Jan 8th came schlepping over just to check things out...

These two were really curious about why the chicks had blue bands on their legs! "We thought legbands were red!" :lol: The little guy just wanted to be left alone.

They all ran back in the box to hide. The dogs and Miss Maggie are romping in the distance...

Poor Angus! He can't catch a break - he's 10 now.

Angus was willing to show off his awesome chikkin skilz , but the pullet wouldn't cooperate.

I like this cockerel. He's got the best comb on the place, seems good natured and has some honkin' big yellow legs.
Both the girls have willow legs and side sprigs. Hum.

Re: Old and Young

ha! YB we got another 8 inches of snow today and I think more is due tomorrow. Don't get me wrong, it's nothing like :Canada:, but we have had a snowy winter.

MD those babies look great. love seeing them with the older chicks.

Re: Old and Young

It's amazing how fast they grow! The big chooks are just 11 weeks... I think Mike has some good stock over there. The cockerel has  been crowing for a week and a half already.

Re: Old and Young

.....:thumbs:  MD...Thank you Sir...but I wouldn't have any of these EO's if it hadn't been for YOU and the other GOOD FOLKS on EOCF.  I know we gotta do our own things but I feel like anything good with these is a 'Group Sucess' as far as my birds go...and I do Appreciate You All............:EO:

Re: Old and Young

The White Dog Hill pullet and cockerel... (I let the grey pullet go)

He's got too much white in his tail and wings, but I love everything else about him. She's got white legs and a wry tail. But she's just as sweet as can be. They're 25-1/2 weeks. He's just started covering her in the past week.

Here's a comparison shot of my cockerel from last year and the FWDH cockerel. Mr. Black, Mr. Yellow and Mr. Purple (sire of all my EOxBJG crosses) are all gone now... retired to the all day jacuzzi for stressed out roosters - the crockpot!

My cockerel. He has double spurs. Is that a flaw?

Re: Old and Young

Wow the list of things to watch for continues to grow. Double spurs hey? Definately not ideal but I'm not sure how serious a defect it is. And wry tail I have been watching for as a couple of my pullets last year are boarder line.

Re: Old and Young

MD multiple spurs are a 1/2 point defect each. Pretty minor is the grand scheme of things.
