Details

Blake's handsome, hornless head. I love his woolly "earcuffs"!

Sweet little bud among the "adult dahlia" flamboyance.

I love Buffy's "up-do." Makes me wonder if this Easter Egger has some exotic chicken genetics in her background.

Ruby slippers seeds.

You know I'm a sucker for wood grain (consider my spindles).

Purple berries on my purple beautyberry bush.

That's it for today from . . .

Buffy's 'do' reminds me of the Doctor in the "Back to the Future" movies.

Those berries don't even look real, they're so vibrant.

LOL, and the comments.

Purpleberries aren't edible, but they ARE that vibrant! Little, though; about the size of a large peppercorn.

Love the purple berries, they almost look like you colored them.

I'm sure she does have some exotic back ground! Easter Eggers are (from what I understand) derived from Araucanas and Ameraucana cross. Araucanas have cheek feathers, Ameraucana's have cheek fluffs, but the EE's don't always carry these features forward. This is an interesting read, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Araucana near the bottom it talks about the differences and breeding. ...Can you tell I love these chickens? :)

I made a mistake (and corrected it with a hot link in the post); my little bush with the candy-colored berries is a Purple Beautyberry, not a Purpleberry.

I have never seen or heard of a purple berry bush. Thanks for the link. I'm surprised I didn't see them in California landscapes. They're so pretty. At first I thought it was an artificial flower.
