Re: some of my hens

Thanks guys, for cockerels I kept one nice big boy son out of the big boy daughters.  he's very nice but has some grey in his chest and two Elevator boys for now still.  One has some grey in his chest too the other has a nice red chest but isn't as big.  I also kept back the nice combed boy from last year.  They are all in the rooster pen and some of them are missing some tail feathers but other then that they get along well.

Re: some of my hens

Nice looking EOs gubi. I also think my favorite is your favorite hen but the other girls are nice looking too. Their biddies seem deeper and perhaps shorter than my birds are? Maybe it's all in my head :Crazy:

?  You will have to explain biddies to me.

Re: some of my hens

Claire calls her birds biddies, so I thought nothing of it :funny:  I thought you were just using a :union jack: term, LOL

Glad to see I not the only one that makes booboo's :thumbsup:

Re: some of my hens

Yay see...I was justing going :union jack:, using the British term biddies which means birds...your birds seem deeper and shorter :whistle:

FRF...the bestest part of admin or mod status is you can correct your typos invisibly...unless someone quotes them and makes a whole post out of them and then you need to fess up :oops:

Re: some of my hens

I thought maybe that's what you call the wattles?  Good thing I asked.  I usually just cut my whole post then delete it and start it over again so I don't look like such an idiot with all the edited posts.  I must have done something right when I set up IE as it now corrects my spelling for me.  That's unless it edits them to something completely different all together!

I think part of the shorter look is that the hens are not square against the camera but on a bit of an angle.  When you look at the 2nd and 3rd picture the hen looks a lot longer in the second picture then in the 3rd picture.  EO's are as hard to get a good shot of as my Brown Swiss for the same reasons.

The lucky boy with 8 hens found a spot without snow under the trees!  They had to get across a snow drift that is about 2 feet tall at that the lowest level to get over there.  We still have lots of snow!

He's a big boy son out of big boy daughters.  I like him a lot, he towers over top of the hens.  Now they just have to start laying.  I separated them a week ago and only have 15 eggs in the first 6 days collecting.  I moved 6 Spitz hens and a rooster to a different coop in the shed and they layed 26 eggs in the same time!  All I did was close the door between the two pens, EO's on one side the EE, Welsummers and the rest of the layers in the other half but hardly any eggs in that coop at all since I closed the door.  Lots before so I hope they will pick it up soon again.
