    I have some very sad (to me) news today. I just found Frick (Miss Priss) dead in the run. He was fine this morning active and full of attitude. I know he ate well b/c his crop was full of fermented grains (and we just put that out this morning), not a mark on him, neck was intact so not broken, the other 3 in the group were fine. I have no clue what happened.

    It's always sad when we find one of our animals dead. Sorry it happened to you.

    Rudy fans, you may have divided loyalty after today, take a look at his new niece / nephew, but first set your drinks down, seriously.

    Absolutely terrific! That is one chick with attitude and I'm happy for you. I'm not sure how much it will feather out as it grows, but are those curly feathers a factor of parentage or happenstance?

    Usually if scsc chickens have "feathers" it is just fluff, they don't grow actual feathers

    It looks like a VERY bad case of molting. That is one precious chick. I still think you should have your chicks modeling chicken clothes. Both Rudy and the new baby are very photogenic.
