Maitland Wyandotte Show last weekend. They are settling in nicely with the established flock and will soon be free ranging with the rest. Oh, and you pronounce it Why-an-dot.
The Wyandotte Show was my first real chicken show and it was crowded with chicken fanatics from across the state. We saw some impressive roosters (the noise was unbelievable!) and many lovely variations on the typical Wyandotte form.
I learned that the fluff of feathers at the bottom of the Wyandotte is called the cushion - and it is particularly pronounced in this type as well.
Here is an update on the growth of the backyard - the tree ferns are thriving and the red cedars are getting established too. I have not watered for months but will start now in preparation for the spring as the drying winds of August make for slow growing weather.
freshly laid warm eggs and plenty of cuddles!
