March 5, 2011 - Chicken Art

In January we saw a chicken movie called 'Mad City Chickens'. Toward the end of the film they featured a painter whose chickens were each placed in front of a window with a different scene. I decided to steal that idea and do my own version of 'Chickens with a View.'

March 3, 2011 - Silver Laced Wyandotte

One of the youngest girls at 7 months is a Silver Laced Wyandotte. She is stunning as chicken feather patterns go--at least in my opinion. Here are a few pictures of her in all her glory.


February 7, 2011 - Mercy Killing

The lightest colored 2-year-old Easter Egger (Blond) suffered from Mareks Disease which ravaged my flock in 2010. She survived, but has been blind. She managed to get to the food, water and nests just fine, but low pecking order hens wouldn't leave her alone. She resorted to hiding in the coop 24 hours a day. Even though she is a very productive layer, we decided she wasn't living a happy chicken life and put her out of her misery.

Here are pictures of Blond in happier days and a photo of Mareks Eye--they may be able to see light but not much else. Sad.

Below are a couple photos a fellow Master Gardener trainee took of her two adorable daughters visiting with my chickens. She also took a picture of me.

January 7, 2011 - The Girls

The baby Silver Laced Wyandotte (4 months old) is definitely more flashy than her 3-year-old sister! You can tell it's wet around here because the Light Brahma baby's foot feathers are wet and muddy.

The solid colored 2-year-old Easter Egger is one that had an abcess on the bottom of her foot. I did surgery on her last summer and it appears she has fully recovered, finished molting and is looking lovely. Now if she would just get back to work!

In the bottom row are 3 pictures of the newest EEs who are n ow 7 months old. The f1rst 2 were dramatically different as chicks, but almost identical as adults. These are the gals who are laying the multicolored eggs from below.

January 3, 2011 - Green Eggs

Here is a dozen small eggs from the 7 baby Easter Eggers. I think most of them are now laying--they are 7 months old. Someone just started laying an olive green colored egg--bottom row. I'm pretty sure the bluest color comes from the palest colored hen, but I don't know about any of the rest.
