Photos of Daddy Frog's new chickens

**  All of these chickens are rescues.  They were being kept all together and were feather picking each other etc. 

This is the male Mille Fleur d'Uccle that we hadn't planned on getting, but Daddy Frog has decided that he likes him because he's a highly neurotic chicken.   He's been dubbed "Spaz"

 We believe this to be a female Porcelain d'Uccle?  ... but we're not sure of the gender because it's so feather picked that it's hard to tell right now.  When it was placed into a "private" cage it collapsed from exhaustion and stress.  It's been fed 3 extra rations of high protein feed and now, 24 hours later, it's doing MUCH better.

One of the three Silver Duckwing Roosters.  Daddy Frog is thinking of keeping at least one... possibly all of them, we'll see.

The Silver Sebright hen.  We are not going to keep her, either butchering her or re-homing!  I can fix the splay beak, but it's a genetic defect due to inbreeding, so she isn't a good candidate for my husband's planned breeding program. 

We do not know what breed this is but we have 4 of them!  They are available to be re-homed!!  

 Silver Duckwing Rooster!  We have 3, 2 are possibly up for re-homing!

Daddy Frog's prized Golden Sebright rooster.  He has named him Larry, and he is a very cocky little guy LOL.  He and I have already had to have a chat about who is going to be the top rooster and who is the submissive one. 

 "Look at me!  Aren't I pretty!?"
Larry has been properly reminded who will be top roo.  Obviously he is humiliated. LOL
