We have gathered 13 eggs this week. Most are in flower pots, (They watch me garden toooo much LOL) I found one in a hanging basket of orchids. Hung that one up higher. LOL The last couple of days they have laid more in the chicken house.
Here is a new picture taken today of Lucy and Ethel with their aprons on,the rooster thinks they are the most beautiful girls he has ever seen and you can tell cause they have no feathers left on there back.
Chicken diapers, lol. You would have to keep changing them, yuk. Much easier to buy a bunch of baby wipes at Walgreens when they have a sale, and just follow them around. I once read about if someone from another planet came here and watched us walk our dogs, with the dogs in the front, and us furtively picking up their poop, who would they think was in charge. When you walk around with your 14th bag of poopy wipes this month, following your chicken, there should be no doubt.
Moodene I think I ordered saddles from you and if I did that probably is one of yours,if so they hold up very well as they have been washes a worn many times.I have made some on my own but the yellow one was bought
Elleisn, just below the box where you type your response to a thread is a box that says "Browse.." You need to know where your pictures are on your computer.. (what the name of the picture is and what folder/location you saved it) So when you click on Browse, it takes you to a list of your folders... You find your picture..(where you saved it) click on "okay" and that should put your picture filename in the box just below where it says Image: and next to the box you clicked on. Then click "preview" to see if it worked.. and click "send"
You wont' mess anything up.. Just give it a try, you'll get it.. :)
I've got so many pictures, I will have to really restrain myself. I think ZZ really has unleashed a monster I carry a picture of Alice in my wallet. My neighbors have come over to take pictures of the girls..
The lack of black feathers and the presence of white feathers makes me kinda think they look like a red sex link of some sort.. I copied this from Feather site..
Red Sex-Links are the result of various crosses. White Rocks with the silver factor (the dominant white gene would produce all white offspring) are crossed with a New Hampshire male to produce the Golden Comet. Silver Laced Wyandotte crossed with New Hampshire gives the Cinnamon Queen. Two other crosses are obtained with Rhode Island White x Rhode Island Red, and Delaware x Production Red. These two crosses are simply called Red Sex-Links. Males hatch out white and, depending on the cross, feather out to pure white or with some black feathering. Females hatch out buff or red also depending on cross, and they feather out in one of three ways.
1. Buff with white or tinted undercolor (such as Golden Comet, Rhode Island Red x Rhode Island White)
2. Red with White or tinted undercolor (Cinnamon Queen)
3. Red with Red undercolor (Delaware x Production Red) (In this color pattern it is almost impossible to distinguish daughters' color from father's color.)
