This is a close up of my favorite chicken, Pepper. She is a Barred Rock. I love her striking coloration and she made it to the top of my list on looks alone. From afar she looks like salt and pepper and up close her plumage is very graphic and almost striped in appearance.
I couldn’t resist this other shot of these beautiful tail feathers courtesy of one of our Ameraucanas, LaFawnduh. Actually I can’t really tell our Ameraucanas apart so they’re all “LaFawnduh” (and yes, we named her/them after the character on Napoleon Dynamite!)
