brown and green and hens all over.

Eleanor, 8 years old, or 9? I have lost track.More mushrooms discovered Saturday while hunting for the bear (note hunting for the bear, not hunting the bear. There's a difference there).
They grow so fast...these are two twin girls, I swear some days they hatched from the same egg!Everyone all grown up, or nearly so. 3 roosters, 2 hens. I wish there was a magic hen wand one could wave over incubating chicks.
My favorite boys. Tutter2 and the very chocolate chick, Truffles.
Yummy Truffles. Think he's a keeper, Americana/Cochin cross, and the foundation for my imaginary planned new breed of chicken, which has no name and will probably fail, but we'll see.
This is likely his mom. Notice the resemblence? He looks more like her than his dad.
See, he looks just like her!
The nameless rooster currently in charge. No name...we all know what that means...
FO's coming soon. Imagine that!?

They are so adorable! What do you do with the roosters? That is the question that's kept us from getting another chicken, after Patti's unfortunate visit with the dogs next door.

These are some of the most beautiful chickens I have seen. I am enchanted by them and it looks quite rewarding. Your enthusiasm is catching. For some reason photographs of mushrooms are so appealing to me, and I love this one as well.

You can see how the brand is getting playful by offering things like replica watches snake skin straps. Which indicates the watch is in time setting mode. Rotating the crown in this mode sets the time, after which rado replica press of the integrated pusher causes the red dot to vanish and locks the swiss replica watches setting mechanism. The green on black palette is eye catching in a zombie chic kind of way, and the sapphire ring through the middle of the case is a unique touch. The crown operation is both unusual and novel, and the rolex replica uk bridges acting as hour indicators help ensure the watch stays legible. While this should enable quicker adjustments than a standard screw down or pull out crown, wearers might need to take care not to accidentally rolex replica uk the pusher with the back of their wrists.
