New chickens! And morning feeding is the best time for photos!

Time to feed the chickens! I finally took the camera out to get some photos of the chickens in their new coop(Well technically its just a huge part of the barn)

Here’s one of our Buckeye roosters. He doesn’t have the slate barring I want though so he might be one of the roosters we process.

Looks like I have a groucho easter egger as well(For those who have seen Les Farms little Groucho!(Look at the easter egger in the left corner and you will see what I mean!)

My Buckeye rooster pegleg. He got stepped on by a horse a few days ago and is limping but getting better. He has the slate barring we want and I’m hoping his limping fully heals so I can show him!

Hope you enjoyed the photos. Their not the best but getting better I realized a setting on my camera was wrong as I’m using old film lenses. That was the reason I have having a lot of issues with overexposure.

  1. Nice assortment you’ve got there! I’m sorta jealous… particularly of that mottled Houdan and all your EEs! I have only 1 EE rooster and 1 Araucana hen, so I’m hoping for lots of blue/green-egger chicks this season from the bantam yard. Apart from that, most of mine are large fowl crosses (ISA, RIR, barred Rock, light Sussex, Australorp, Ancona, white Leghorn, Wyandotte) – good layers and nice plump cockerels, with some interesting and pretty feathering patterns coming out.

    • My remaining mottled houdan hen just got killed yesterday sadly so I only have a mottled houdan rooster left. My other chickens are doing great though. My friends are also giving me a pair or trio of amazing barred rocks soon and they just gave me the cutest pair of barred naked neck turken crosses.
