The place to show off pictures of your chickens.
Thanks everyone, they are coming along well,the little girl in the second photo is getting a bit of bullying around feeding unfortunately (she is lovely, very friendly but also very timid) but aside from that they are rubbing along well enough together. They had their first communal dustbath today in semi damp soil bless them, still they seemed to enjoy it well enough with a couple of them having forty winks while they were at it. Half the grass has already disappeared Icemaiden, don't think the other half has long to go. Not the only thing that disappeared either, we accidentally left half a dozen eggs on top of the roof of the house (which is outside the run) and while we wondered if something might have eaten them, were surprised to find absolutely no trace of them when we went up to see, no shell, yolk or anything they had been snatched whole, reckon it was either the crows or the Red Kites that got the meal of a lifetime.
They are looking a bit better feathered now and all this refeathering while continuing to lay non stop bless em, they all have the same little bit which hasn't regrown because they can't resist pecking each other there, right at the upper front of the wing. They have turned out to be a lovely fearless little bunch of chickens and despite some of the extra problems that they bring with them I would say that taking them on is well worth it.
