The chickens and the lone rooster received some base paint today. Right now they are legless because the pivot mechanisms are not completed. When the pins are in there will be touch up paint added to hide the ends of the pins.
Here's Sultan the rooster with one of the members of his harem. He has a vested interest in keeping track of his girls. He certainly would be flattered if they were losing their heads over him!
