Awwww! That photo of your daughter hugging the hen is precious! Pretty birds, too

 

Sad to say I've had to cancel my order from GFF, can't justify an added shipping cost plus 5 hr. round trip and gas, besides having goats due to kid any day this week. So someone else will get bumped up on the list and be happy! The 8 SFH I have are doing great, growing like crazy. hope they end up as pretty as yours.

I ended up with more SFH cockerels than pullets so one of the guys went in with the egg flock for a while. There is a pretty little Ameraucana in there and I saved her eggs. They hatched Friday. I was wishing for beards, muffs and crests. This is what I got. smile.png Looks promising! The color is a bit off because I forgot to pop up the flash on the camera.

Can't wait to see if they take on any of the speckles of the SFH's. That would be so cool. Keep us updated on these chicks, would you? Thanks smile.png

KKH - Of course, I will!

I did have 4 SFH's hatch, too. They all look just like their parents did. As before, the color is off because I forgot the flash. That towel is light blue.

Four of our Swedish Flower Hen Chicks are CRESTED - woo hoo! Below are pictures of a couple of them. You can go to http://froggybogfarm.weebly.com/swedish-flower-hens.html to see them all if you want... we are keeping a photo journal of them from day one - it is fun to look back at the pictures to see how much they have grown and changed :)

My 2 week olds. Only had 4 hatch, of that only 3 survived. Right now it looks like all 3 may be crested. Not good. What do you think??

These are the only SFH's I have. If I'm lucky enough to NOT have 3 pullets or 3 roos then I'm worried that breeding crested will result in too large of a crest. Is this not an issue?

 

I'm new to this and would appreciate being set straight on this if I'm wrong.
