I love this thread and looking at everyone's Campines. We got 6 chicks from MPC in April, 2 of which are Golden Campines. They certainly do have interesting personalities and as someone else said, mine will never be lap chickens. I got 2 because I thought due to their smaller size, they would need a buddy to help them get along with their 4 brooder mates and the other 7 yr old hens they would eventually be housed with. Well, their size may be small, but they seem to make up for it with their high energy level - and one of mine has a mouth that won't quit. We named her Goldie, but Squawky would be more appropriate.
So. I'm including a pic of them - both are supposed to be female but the one on the left - Goldie has a larger and redder comb. They are 16 wks old - I'm hoping she is just maturing a bit faster. Especially since one of her brooder mates - Suzie has turned out to be a beautiful Speckled Sussex Rooster. Not what we expected. We call him Sioux now.
And just for grins - this is the girl that turned out to be a boy:
