Bathtime and high fashion

Post by rick » Sun Oct 29, 2017 6:57 pm

Took some photos today as the CLBs and Bonnie were in the bath together.

Linden is sporting the the latest in footwear from the Autumn catalogue (actually an attempt to stop the girls from pecking his pin feathers - seems to be working and comfortable.) Bonnie has just got out of the bath. Apart from the moulted tail she has been looking pretty good lately.

lovely photos - Linden looks as if he's about to engage in some new Olympic sport- what are they made of, Rick?

It is the black plastic back of a document/report cover thing (clear front, black back for putting A4 paper in.) Tied on loosely just under the ankle and under the foot between the 'thumb' and the foreclaw.

Great invention- have you tried selling on eBay?

Thanks Marigold!
I haven't as I've only just tried it out. I also have a great belief in Copyleft licencing but not everyone wants to make stuff themselves so... It would be a bit like those shoe insoles that you trim down to size with corresponding holes for different lengths of foot.
Truth is, having an aversion to selling stuff is something I really should get over!

That second photo made my night!. The first one is really sweet too and I don't even like Legbars. God knows what you would get up to if anyone ever furnished you with a lab and some funding Rick.

Like last time I have only just seen this thread two days after it was posted, it does seem to be off other peoples radars too or I'm sure there would be more comments on this.

I think some people haven't cottoned on to the idea of clicking on the Unread Posts button, rather than going all through the sections one by one. Consequently, posts in sections like Photos of Chickens, which aren't very common compared with General Chickens or Health can get missed.

and how could ANYONE not like legbars?

Iv'e made the aforementioned design pattern and will post it as soon as it's complete. I can sense that you just can't wait to try it out in a range of colours Dinosaw. ;)
His pin feathers are finally getting a chance to grow out now. What you can't see in that second photo, because of the shield, is that Linden is giving the thumbs up!

Bit silly maybe but as promised. You will need to scale the print so the 10cm scale on the drawing is 10cm on paper
