    Thanks, they are super cute. Sadly that is the last photo I have of my amazing white rock mama hen and flock leader. She died about a week or two later defending her chicks from a coyote. It was a sad moment. I wanted to have her as my avatar because she was my very best chicken friend. And now every time I come here I see that and smile.

    She did, She was my buddy.

    I have six mature hens now, and then her seven pullets are about 6 weeks, and we just got two Icelandic roosters, but one went next-door. lol I'm not sure if we will get him back depends on if we can catch him.
    How many do you have? I'm gonna take a guess on at least some of them are silkies?

    Aww sounds like a lovely
    Flock you have :)

    I have about 12 laying hens of various breeds, five darling silkies, a lavender guinea and a pair of peafowl. One of the silkie hens is sitting on two eggs that are due any day now, so I'm crossing fingers for a successful hatch!

    Oooh how exciting!!! our chicks came from the feed store then our white rock adopted them. she wanted to be a mama so bad. I've never hatched eggs though, hopefully now with our roosters we will get the chance. our rooster just went in the coop tonight so right now my girls are not impressed. lol

    That's so sweet <3 It's not oftenthat hens will accept other chicks.

    Hatching is a blast, and quite addictive :D There's nothing like going out to feed and hearing new peeping under mama hen.

    i'm excited to give it a try, probably not this year though. She was special I am going to try and get a few more white rocks to see if any turn out like her but I doubt it. I'm waiting to see if I make a new special chicken friend now that she is gone. I'm going to cross my fingers for your hatch!

    I've never had white rocks, but I've heard good things about them :) Sounds like yours was a sweetheart.

    Thank you, and I'll post pics somewhere if they hatch!
