isn't he too beautiful. His flight feathers are coming in an irridescent green and blue which makes him Crow's baby we think - John Wayne was a barred rock and Crow is an australorp. Note also (says the proud grandma) the feathers on his head are much lighter. He is a beaut and starting to crow like mad. His sister - Miss. Prissy - is shy and subservient but we think she'll come into her own soon enough.
Today I am working on my govt. project "Beyond the Pail" we call it. I'll work this morning with little knitting breaks to finish step-dots hat. I only have the ears to do - it is a grown-up version of a Kitty hat~! I'm exceptionally pleased with it and the fact that I managed to follow instructions.
