My Chicken Pages: Jace and Bubbles

    Bubbles is my little darling and the tamest chicken I have ever met.

    He is the ultimate lap chicken, he loves snuggling and will fall asleep on his back in my lap.
    He will also be your friend for life if you give him a raspberry. Easily bought, eh?

    Bubbles when he was younger
    He is almost 4 months old now, and he still hasn't crowed yet. I'm sure not complaining.

    Breed: Spangled OEGB

    She was named Jace because I thought she was a boy. I chose the smallest, peppiest chick in the bunch and later realised that was probably a mistake if I wanted a hen... I got lucky though.

    She is a little less snuggly than Bubbles but I guess that's to be expected, considering how I chose her.... She is very smart too and quickly figured out how to escape my un-buried fence. I am hoping that she will go broody when she is older.

    Much like your Jace, My EE, Ethel was a stinker from the beginning. She's so smart and independent. If there's something we don't want the girls to do, Ethel will do it first. She is now our first to lay (4 1/2 mo old) and acts like she is the queen of the world!

    Beautiful chickens. I am new to the chicken world and never knew there were so many different kinds of chickens. These are so cute. I am enjoying this new journey lol I do have 6 hens that I just got 3 days ago. I did have 4 roosters thanks to my daughters chicken project . She is a special education teacher so she got 24 Americana eggs 18 of them hatched. The children loved it. I sort of got involved and voluntered to take 4 of course I got all Roosters. Her assistant got the other 14 which were 3 hens & 11 roosters. The breeder did take all the Roosters back I kept 1 and was able to purchase 6 hens from him that just started laying. Seeing all these breeds does make me want morre.

    I love Jace! She looks like our three OEGB pullets, they're Crele though. Mine are only 3 months old. Where'd you get her? We got ours as sexed chicks from

    No, I got them form a store as to was too expensive to get them from MPC, as the total cost was 50 dollars with shipping for 15 chicks. I actually ordered them, but I had to wait until July 1 and come "chick days" at stores it was just too much!!
    I canceled my order and got them from a store and i have never regretted it.

    @Barredrock360 Thanks! he is a sultan, they are my new favorite breed of chicken. if you want one MPC has them for 3.60 but it's easier to get them from a store. :)
