I was down in the coop a-working on it, and while doing so, took some pics of the cycens that inhabit it.
First, and least important to the flock, but my favorite, the Cochin hen:
IT IS SO CUTE. You can’t really tell by the picture, but IT IS SO CUTE.
You can see the scabs on its Comb and a little frostbite on its wattle. The cape or Hackle feathers had been very bloody for a while, but they have since been washed clean. He should be able to survive nicely once the weather warms up and I expand the yard.
Currently he is perched on the top bar of the nesting boxes. The blue pegboard is a left over from when the coop was a garden Shed. The stuff on the shelf under it is some trash I want to remove soon (see link in previous paragraph).
Finally, another Cock-photoe:
The third Cock of the Flock, a Salmon Faverolle(s), was an “extra” free from the hatchery (McMurray). You can’t really see it in this pic, but it has feather legs, and a beard of feathers which get wet when it drinks! It also holds its hackle feathers out away from its head a good deal, so it looks sortof like a llama!
More pix if anyone requests them.
