When You’re This Beautiful


When you’re this beautiful, you have to spend a lot of time primping. After a very wet rain, a patch of late afternoon sunshine, provides an opportunity to preen. I have two young roosters who look like this. Based on their features, I am guessing they are a cross between a Swedish Flower Chicken and an Americauna. The amount of green and blue on their feathers almost makes you think a pheasant meandered through one day and had a dalliance with one of the hens. Could a pheasant and a chicken breed? Evidently so: see Gamebird Hybrids.
