    frizzle bantam pictures....I hope

    It's been a while since I posted any pictures. Here's hoping I remember how!! Trying to get pictures was a riot. They seem to know when the shutter is going to click to move. It was also late in the day and the lighting wasn't the best.

    In the middle picture the fateful meeting outside the chicken yards where they are separated.It took the big hens a minute to realize what was going on . Then they took turns chasing them away from the rooster, Golden Boy. He is such a sweetheart. Well they all survived........By the way, the white hen is the only one without a topknot. !

    they are beautiful, thanks for the pictures. it's amazing that they 'protected' the darn tootin rooster, of all things!!
    How old are they now. are the ones without the top knot roosters? when will you have babies? what will you do with the beautiful feathers.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    This chickens are just too cute! I've never seen this type before. Do you get eggs from them? (Probably a dumb question) Oh, well. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the pictures. They are so cute. I love the one with the golden chest. Hope they all get along. The bigger hens probably were picking on the little ones.

    Thanks for the memories. You made my day. Does anyone remember going to the Dime Store ( ours was Woolworth ) around Easter and buying a baby chick that had been dyed a pastel color? There were 4 of us and we each got to choose a color. Mine was always pink, my sister got a lavender one, one brother got a blue one and the other brother got a green one. I can't believe my Mom actually let us keep them in a box in the house until they got big enough to put outside. LOL I also recall baby chicks being ordered from the hatcheries and the mail man delivering them in a cardboard box.

    They haven't started to lay yet, but I know the eggs will be small.

    My mother was a postmaster in the small town we grew up in. One time in the dead of winter a shipment of baby chicks arrived about 250, yep in the mail (before UPS and FED-EX). She kept having trouble with the heat in the post office and it got really cold. The customer was out of town so MOM called her supervisor and asked if she could bring them home to keep them warm. back then she got the OK. Didn't want any dead chicks. I can still remember 11:30 at night listening to nothing but peeps coming from the living room. 250 peepers make a lot of noise. My sister raised bantams for awhile but couldn't get the money out of them she could get from the larger egg layers. She still kept them.

    They are unusual from the chickens my great Aunt and Uncle raised on their Kansas farm. They are beautiful.

    They are so wonderful. I think they are so neat. My Aunt used to raise all kinds of different chickens and I think the Frizzles were always my favorite.
