The Great Chicken Update Part 2

These poor little chickens felt left out from the last post, so here they are in all their feathered splendor!
Miss Daffodil the Americauna

"Cloudy" the Americauna
Yes, named for her coloring and our neighbor because she's so cute

"Mr. Bean" the Black Brahma Rooster with feathered feet.

Look at those feet!  As chicks we nicknamed these guys "owls"  
"Mr. BEAN" he is hilarious when he runs
The girls still pick him up and it's already February.  So he is gentle!
ISA Brown Hen ~ may be "Georgia" from Curious George

Another ISA Brown ~ they differ slightly in coloring.
Great layers.  
The Brown ISA lay continuously for about 1.5 years for us.  By then our new ones are laying well and then we butcher the old hens.  We don't get too attached to these ones, knowing their purpose.
"Debbi" (yes from my mom in law)
She is one of the prettiest and we think a Sussex cross maybe?
Debbi lays a nice greenish/blue egg ~ so she is probably an Easter Egger.  Americauna cross.
Rosie ~ what's not to love about the roundness of her?
Notice her feet.  She will be a good Momma

Feathered feet of a Cochin
