    Midnight Majestic Marans

    So a month ago we got these chicks from a local breeder. Unusual to me was that they were cooled when we got them. It took a little longer to hatch, and we had a broody silky, she hatched 7 out of 12. 2 went missing early on, and 3 were unviable. So they hatched and they are doing fine...

I have three ducklings right now that will be around 5-ish...
