I got 5 due tomorrow I have been watching hourly LOL 

Stay at home mother, and crazy for my chickens. Currently I have a small mixed flock of RIR, Barred Rock, Black Sexlinks. I am sure the breeds are not pure they are feed store left overs that no one else wanted. I also have a small flock of Bantam silkies.

That I donated eggs from.. MORE PICS!!!! There is before and after pics of the silkie, and she was barely alive when I found her after 5 minutes of being outside, and I ran to turn off the water... I hawk came down and attacked her and scalped her, but luckily the Sebbie geese got it off and scared it away... I brought her in and cleaned it up and put some stuff on it,a don packed it... I took it off later and kept it off, and she lived off of Gatorade drank through a syringe.... She was in for about 2 months in my room with twizzler in the box next to her to keep her company... So I took her out now that it is pretty healed up, with only feathers needing to grow back in on the wound... Now she is living outside with Blue the silkie roo!! And twizzler... Well.., she hates other birds, and they hate her.., so she is a bedroom chicken.,, tongue.png












  Nate!  You are amazing!  I remember you from last yr.  You have grown in so many ways.  You haven't changed in one way though..you...love...your...animals!  :thumbsup   You are doing so well with them.  Not only in the keeping them safe, and then taking care of the sick, but you are showing?   Looks like you are doing well.  And, you are leaning so much about different breeds.    I love your  S. geese!   Beautiful.   All of your birds look so nice.  I'm always glad to see when animals are being treated well.  Good job buddy!  :highfive:

I'm going to be setting my "Dalmatian" bantams, which is a fun project breed that I'm working with. They're a hardy bantam that is good at laying eggs, foraging, and brooding. However, so far I've gotten a whole lot of variety as far as appearance goes. That means I should get a lot of fun colored chicks. I've even got some blue ones that my hen hatched a few weeks ago.

 

The picture doesn't show their color too well, but one has silkie feathers and the other doesn't. These two varities of the Dalmatian I call Doves and Tadikas, after the original Dove and Tad.
