Hello there, its nice to see you, please come in and get comfortable. Did you have snow on the ground his morning? We woke up to a light dusting and I have to say it made everything look really pretty. Then the dogs were let out.... and well that was the end of the pretty. =)
|Male Salmon Faverolles|
|A male Silver Gray Dorking-These chickens are a very old breed introduced by the Brits to the Romans. The males are fancy with their silvery white and black coloring. They have a long body on short legs.|
|This is a female Silver Gray Dorking- the coloring for the girls is ashy- gray and white. The breed has a fifth toe and they are on the threatened list as far as breeds go.|
So those are some of the breeds I am looking at getting strictly for my pleasure and in hopes of helping keep the breeds around for others to enjoy in the future. It is a hard decision but one that I will be so happy to make!
Mikhaila and I are also going to be putting in our order for meat chickens soon. If you know of anyone that will be looking for chickens for the freezer please have them contact us. Mikhaila is also looking at getting her own set of Turken chickens for egg sales. The Turkens are about the only chicken that she thinks are really cute. I have to ask the question that comes to everybody's mind.... Are they so ugly that they are cute???
|Yes they are suppose to look like this. They are not having a bad hair.... errrr uhhhh feather day.|
