Roger The Rooster and his Hens

Okay, so these aren't native Australian birds, but they are still in our back yard!  Roger is a young Wyandotte rooster. 

These two are Rhode Island Red hens.  We hatched them from eggs that were given to us by a chook breeding friend.  They always hang around together, so cute!
The white hen is a Columbian.  Not a good angle, but it's hard to photograph the chooks, they are always on the move, especially when they see us stalking them with our cameras!

  1. Don't you just love chooks!!! I miss having them, especially when I have to use 'bought eggs'. My grand daughter's rooster is called Ronald, and I believe he's rather proud of his kingdom. We used to have silver laced Wyandotte's, such pretty ones they were. As I type this I can see a pale headed rosella drinking at the water station, being rather bossy toward two pesky minors!! Take care.
