A Chicken Kind Of Post

I think I'm over due to post some pictures of the chickens. So here are some updated ones that I thought were blog worthy.This is Chief. Megan calls him Big Guy, and he really is! He's a silver laced chochin that we got as our "free rare chick" from the hatchery. He is the sweetest thing so far. I hope he stays that way because I would love to see what he fathers with our mix of hens next spring. Can you imagine a naked necked, feather footed chick?

If you let the three year old have the camera for a while, you are bound to have at least one really good picture. This pullet rarely stands still enough for me to get her picture. But she sure is underfoot if she thinks I have a treat.

This is our little bantam rooster. So far we just call him Noname (pronounced NO-NAAM-A), but he needs a real name. Any suggestions? I had heard it said that bantam roosters are "half the size with twice the personality". That is definatly true of this little guy.

I'm still not 100% sure what this pullet is. I think she may be a silver laced wyandotte, but whatever she is, she has lots of personality.
