Meet "Flash2" my Ameraucana rooster. His dad "Flash" was Blue creme and his mother was an brick red hen that laid sky blue large eggs...my best winter layer. Flash2 is home raised. He has every color, note the blue laced red feathers on his lower breast, his tail is dark blue, straw colored saddle, black edged gold hackle and his wings--brick red, blue and yellow. That why he is king of the hen house. Toward Spring my silkie hens can sit on some Ameraucana eggs.......trying for a flashy pullet or two. Yesterday I expanded the hen coop and today I painted the walls white...after I took Flash2's pic. More later Jerry

November 2011 I retired, sold my Shetland flock and moved to town.I live on the edge of Fergus Falls, pop 13,000. Its has been a great choice. My mother, sister, her family and my granddaughter live here. I have a garden shed that I converted into a chicken coop. Its also houses my granddaughter's pet Rabbit. My backyard will be flowers and shrubs.
