I have a couple of NN and just think they're so adorable. Clover is dark buff and a year old. Mariposa is black and about 5 weeks. She's got some coppery lace coming in on her neck feathers that look so pretty.
Well, I saw another one that I'm considering buying, but I enjoy my rainbow flock and don't want another that's a repeat of my buff beauty. This little chick (being sold as a pullet) is about a week old and is a medium buff color. What intrigues me about her is the two dark brown 'racing stripes' on either side of her back, plus a couple splotches on her head. Any ideas as to what she might turn out like as an adult?
I will go check out your thread. When you are ready in the future I'd be happy to send you some eggs. I'll PM you about payment.
One more pic of my girl from today. They were eating watermelon out in the yard.
RIP she was beautiful.
I found my jumbo lethargic this morning. as my araucana girl was like that when she started to lay I gave her baytril. her crop didn't empty last night and it is not impacted. that happened to the araucana as well. jumbo drank a lot of water and now she is under the coop in the shade. my araucana laid a few eggs then stopped. but I see her almost every day in the nest. as I have another araucana in that run I am not sure if she might have laid 1-2 eggs.
1 egg. I cannot incubate 1 egg. and dont have room for any chicks right now/
I agree I wouldn't incubate an egg from a hen that died so young of non-trauma cause, and wouldn't incubate just one either.
