Sugar and Shadow

Sugar and Shadow are growing up so quickly and their feathering is changing slightly. Sugar has some very fine, biscuit colour brown, in amongst her white feathers now. That’s okay as she can be white sugar with a sprinkle of brown sugar.

Shadow has the grey in more of a patch pattern than a block pattern. Both girls are very pretty. It’s difficult to show the brown among the white on Sugar’s feathers as her white colour gives off a glare in the light but I managed to get some close ups while the pair were perching.

They are such an adorable pair of girls.

      I think so. Considering there were so few girls to choose from I feel really pleased that these two are so pretty and different from my other girls.

    Lovely photos; what strikes me also is that their crops, Shadow’s especially, are very prominent: they’re obviously eating really well. If there was a chicken lovers’ calendar, one of these photos would surely figure!

      Aw, thank you. I am always worrying about them eating enough because they still pick the smallest bits of pellets and I am still bashing them up a bit and giving mash to make sure they are eating enough. But they have caught on to the treats. They peck at the apples, they eat greens if I drop tiny bits in front of them and they love sunflower hearts although not so much corn. I sometimes look at their crops and have to tell myself to stop worrying. I also keep an eye on there being plenty of poop under their roost spot. These are the things that us chicken lovers have to do!
