I guess I better get my entries in today...just found out Ian is taking all of tomorrow off and working Sunday instead of tomorrow. In case your wondering, that means no computer time tomorrow, and that also means I will be going down to get the new birds on Sunday instead. So there you have it.
I have a pen of young birds that will be let out to free roam in Spring. They grew up in this pen together and get along quite nicely. When I open the pen door the Golden Phoenix cockeral is always first to the door. He thinks he wants out, so one time I let him wander out. He is not ready, he is not full grown and easily intimidated by everyone, so back in he went.
The next two to the door are the pair of Silver laced Polish I raised up. She is always very eager to come out, and I don't really know why. Some may think that a pen is confining, but actually they see it as their sanctuary, their safe place. So venturing out is a big step.
Next the silkies will start to come forward..the boy first of course. See the two girls in the back? They are both broody and sitting on eggs! I wonder what will come out of them? We got quite a combo of guys and gals in this pen and just for fun I thought I would let them sit and see what came out of it all.
Speckles is in this pen too.
