    Look at the saddle feathers on that little roo!! *smile*
    He's pretty, isn't he?? I don't know what he is! If you can guess, please let me know. He was traded for a guinea chick, I think.

    What pretty Chickens! (Never thought I'd say that) I feel the need to shoot and BBQ some of my chickens. The horses, goats, and dogs all dislike them. (no clue why) Bandit chases them away from all the other horses. I do like a handful of them. (sometimes) Needless to say I'm no chicken fan.
    Thank you! We had some rotten luck with a couple being pulled through the wire. Turns out, it was our goat that dug up the whole hole that the predator got through. He was digging up the dirt as a laying hole and the land owner caught him in the act. Lol

    These chickens are very friendly. The lightest grey one up front lost her eye as a baby to another chick. I call her Minnie. She likes to be held. They live a pretty charmed life with awesome roosting boxes inside bedded with hay and the self feeder/waterer. Also makes them more pleasant to tend to, because they need so little! I have enjoyed them.

    That I cannot tell you...When I went to fill their feeder, I got busy and didn't visit as long as usual. But I did notice he has feathers on his feet.

    Oh cute! He's probably a mix. If he's got green legs/feet, then he's likely and Easter Egger ... feathers on the feet could come from several breeds, none of which he really looks like (that I can think of) ..

    He's cute!

    Why don't we talk about goats? I like goats (much more than chickens)

    This morning I went out to do te barn chores and noticed Bandit was out of his stall playing with the goats in the middle of the barn! The goats didn't surprise me but, Bandit did. If you don't know my goats are ninja escape artists. Every pen or fence I've treid they've gotten out of. (I should free range goats) How on earth a 11 month year old Colt got out is beyond me. Any ideas on how he escaped? I need to fix it.

    Haha. I've had that happen, minus the goats, but it was usually me who didn't latch the chain after feeding. I keep my feed stall locked so even if they escape, they can't get into the feed/hay. Also found one out after it pulled the middle stall board off cribbing. (Boarder horses are so fun!), and exited through the top and bottom planks.

    Any idea what age hens start laying? Mine are getting pretty big, and I've noticed they have more interest in roosting, but no eggs thus far. Hmmm

    I no longer have any goats, unfortunately, but I'd love to get more. I was rather attached to my last annoying barn buddy.
