First Blue Copper Maran Egg!

First Blue Copper Maran Egg, smaller one in center.  Can't wait for the next one.
Then far left, Speckled Sussex, next is a Welsummer and the two on the far right, bantam Ameracuna.  
Eggs look a little lighter than they are, because of the lighting

Morning clouds ~

Couple of weeks ago, I came out and saw this...
A beautiful storm cloud morning
with bright sunshine streaming through..

National Gallery of Fine Art in DC ~

Went to the National Gallery in DC yesterday... 
holy grief... if you have Menieres, 
bring noise cancelling head phones. Is very loud.

Not a bad Gallery.. 
Glad they had wheel chairs... won't of been able to see it all, without one. 
(though a scooter would be a lot nicer)

One very cool thing I saw, Leonardo da Vinci, 
Ginevra de' Benci painting.
Is the only da Vinvci painting in the USA.

You can see the painting on This Link.

Did not take a photo of it, because it is so old. But here are some photos,, of other things we saw.

They had some neat Garden spaces too.

Was a long day but worth it.
Also ended up with some free parking in a handicapped spot, very close to the museum.
Allowed me to walk a little longer, before needing a wheel chair.

Dyfra ~

Photos of Dyfra this morning.
 Yes, she has a fly sheet on... she has to have something on if I want to ride.
Should re name her ... Pig Pen. LOL

Trying to get my horses' to play, with me just there....

I just ride her walk, tolt (she has a good range of speed, while keeping the tempo clean) and canter. She does have a good Trot.

Bantams and Marans~

Took some photos today.

 One of the Roo's has golden shoulders... not a good thing for Lavenders... but I like him a lot at this point.

Of course the Better Lavender... didn't want me to take his photo.
These are the bantam version of the
The Big hens, who will be moved to the large poultry Hen house soon, 
are Blue Copper Maran.

Ameraucana Hen above.

The better Ameraucana Rooster above.

With the Blue Copper Maran hen.

Couple of the d'Uccle Bantams.

Only two of the hens came out with muffs 
and beards.
Plan on selling the others.
