I showed you pictures the other day of my chickens and their bare backs.
Their feathers are starting to grow back now. I tried to get pictures and close ups of most of them; they are all at different stages.
Jaynes feathers are starting to *feather*. I don't know the official jargon.
Ethels feathers are just poking through (this is actually a few days ago and they are in quite more prominently now)
That is just in a day or so...
... doesn't it look painful?
Her's are just in the beginning stages and they are lighter in color than Ethel's. I'm not sure what that means because they are the same type of chicken. All I can figure is their coloring, Ethel is more of a black barred rock with white stripes; and Gracie is more of a White barred rock with black stripes. That is how I tell them apart too.
Here is a picture of a partial flock. Can you tell which ones are The Nuggets?
This is Lucy and a Nugget.
Lucy as been pushed out of the Friendly Flock... (irony, I know) they aren't so friendly to you if you are the same size as The Nuggets.
Just doesn't seem fair.
But, they are getting big enough to 'put up' now, I'm thinking.
I took this picture of George the other day. It was quite warm and he stood like this for quite some time. Frozen like a statue, with his chest out and his wings slightly open. He was cooling himself.
I tried it.
When the breeze comes across the back pasture at just the right speed and your standing in the shade.
Hope you're staying cool where you are!
