I couldn't get good photos of the girls...

Here is a picture of the beta cock, I think he is 2 years old. Someone keeps pecking his crest... I haven't seen it happen... so maybe at night.. he is my one golden spangled.

Hen on left is way too light Chamois, hen on right is nice.

Alpha cock. He is several years old, 4? (I lost my records this past fall) He is excellent, except he leans more towards lace than quality spangles. One of the reasons for beta. Beta has too many spangles, but good perfect spangles.

WOW BARE GROUND in Alaska??!!!!!
They are pretty. Are they supposed to have white earlobes? I don't know anything about the breed.
I know! (On the bare ground) still in shock to see grass! :lol:

And yes, they are supposed to have white earlobes. Mine don't have solid white... a bit of red seeps in at the edges.

They lay white eggs.

That picture of the mallard in the slushy ice on the pond, post that as a POW!
I always enjoy pictures of your chickens. They sure are pretty.

Not a great photo... not sure why I wasn't getting them in focus... but here is my ENTIRE flock in one shot!!! (Well full sized flock, bantams have their own coop)

They had run out of water.... :rolleyes:

But anyway, full flock photos... 12 Spitz hens, 2 cocks, and one old lady cross maransxEE
