Yeah, they are pretty fun, although most of my mixed breed chickens look kinda the same right now... mostly just brownish/blackish . So I am keeping some mixed breeds and then also gonna have some pens of other cool colored chicken breeds. I recently bought 6 Svart Hona chicken eggs (for $50) and only 1 hatched. So now I have one expensive chick that thinks he(/she) is a duck (since I don't have any chicks that age to keep him with so he has to stay in the duckling brooder) He guards the ducklings (even though he is 1/3 their size), makes more squeeky sounding cheeps trying to sound like them and tries to drink like them too, by sticking his head almost fully under the water!
Beautiful colors and so cute! I don't have chickens with the lavendar, blue, self blue or other cool genes like that yet so my mixed breeds are less exciting. I do have a chocolate cuckoo orp roo but he is too poofy to breed the hens Gotta give him a feather trim at some point
