Here is the latest video. I shot it with my pocket camera. They are the funniest looking things. I am absolutely in love with some of them who have earned names. "Tallulah, Irma, Renee" for starters.
I think I need help with names. Today was one of those days that nothing went as planned. I made no progress on "Fort Chicken." Hoping tomorrow will bring the end. My friend Charlie is coming to help.
Bob doesn't know it, but I'm snagging him in the morning to help put the horse fence on the two small sides.

The large blonde who comes the closest is "Tallulah" (the real Tallulah, you know who you are :-)
"Irma" is the prettiest of the black Cochins. "Renee" is the first Dominique to really feather out in a barred pattern. One moment they look like prehistoric dinosaurs, and the next emus with long out stretched necks. The feathers are so tiny. And Myster E the "surprise" bird looks nothing like a chicken. He looks like a house sparrow. Sort of the "Ugly Duckling" of the chickens. When I open the cage, Tallulah flies into my lap, and Irma follows. They get that "the Mama" look in their eyes when they see me. The Brahmas look as if they have leather flying goggles on. I have to get a picture before their feathers come in.
