So much news!
My 10 week old Old English Game bantam CROWED! so now he is off to live with my friend and is learning the fine art of humility from her rooster LOL! He's doing very well with her flock of 14, and has 3 friends his own age to play with. No other banties though :(
We shuffled off 12 of the new little babes to her place as well, the brooders were getting full of HUGE chicks! They are doing well outside in the day. She brings them in at night, as it goes down to 10C here!
So now I have 3 teenagers and 6 chicks left!
The teenagers I know their breeds, and 3 of the new ones are barnyard beauties from a different farm, but the other 3 new chicks are all mixed purebred. There is only one daddy and we're told he is a purebred Ameraucana (see below for actual pic of him... can anyone tell me what color he is?) and that the mommies are all different kinds of purebreds but we have no idea what they are! They lay all different kinds of eggs, some small white, some peach, green, pink, dark brown spotted, you name it! I'll have to get a breed book and look them up... unless anyone can help us identify breeds and/or colors? Some of you guys have probably seen everything! I hope because of their daddy, they'll all be easter eggers? There was only one Ameraucana mom, and she lay teal eggs. The only one of those that hatched died, so we know all of them are crosses.
