Our barnyard has some pretty cute couples (ok, so it’s more of a guy with a harem situation). The two Silver Laced Wyandottes (above) our our prettiest SLWs by far. He’s sort of an odd guy though. We have yet to witness any mating (creepy that we watch for it though, right?) and he has never crowed. NONETHELESS, their eggs are fertile and we’re hatching out pretty little SLW chicks quite often now. I like to think he’s that quiet, romantic kind of guy. He opens the door for his ladies, buys them the finest straw, and doesn’t start too many fights.
Layla, left, is a fine young hen who just started laying this year. Her dear husband, Edgar, is the quiet type (possibly the type that could snap at any minute and destroy a whole city). Their dates normally consist of fine dining at Le Worm and cuddling up on a roost while watching the sunset. Layla and Edgar met at Barn De Rio, but have been living together in El Motto for almost 6 months now. They dream of producing beautiful chicks that will grow up to show chickens.
The two Ameraucaunas above were the first barnyard couple EVER. Waldo (left) and Spot (right) have been together since we started our chicken adventure. Spot is our big bad rooster. He has oh…8 girlfriends right now. I’d like to think Waldo is his main girl though. She lays the prettiest green eggs. Spot should be proud!
Spot, right, and Waldo, left, have been together for about a year now. It was an arranged marriage, but they have grown to love each other. Both of them were orphans found in a silver basin and adopted into a loving family. For a while, Waldo feared that she was infertile. Finally, after many many months of trying, she laid her first egg! While they don’t spend a lot of quality time together, Spot will often call her to the dinner table and they’ll converse over some pellets.
These two are our Icelands. They have such beautiful colored feathers! Our rooster (right) just reached maturity, so they’re stepping up their relationship and moving into the next level! She still hasn’t laid any eggs, but we’re hoping she will soon.
It was slim pickin’s for these two! Tyler, right, didn’t have a lot of girls to choose from. Likewise, being an endangered chicken didn’t exactly mean that Milie, left, would have many options. Despite these difficulties, they have really become attached at the hip. They never leave each other’s sights and have been seen doing a little too many PDAs. Currently, they’re just trying to save up money so that they can have their first egg together.
The muscovey brothers have been with that cute little hen for more than 5 years. They’re the most protective guys in the barnyard and rarely let her out of their sight.
The Muscovey brothers, right, are notorious gangsters in El Motto. The have been seen interrogating Pekin ducks and are almost always following around their woman, Space Stepmom (left). Space met these boys a long while ago. She was in some trouble with another gang and the Muscovey Brothers stepped up to protect her. They spend their free time wreaking havoc on the locals. Space is a little suspicious that the Brothers may have a thing for a Pekin girl, but she tries not to worry about it too much.
