    The momma is Buff orp. The babies are Standard Cochins out of my SQ Splash hens and SQ Black hen. The daddy is a SQ Black Cockerel that is magnificent.

    The chicks are blue, blue, and either dark blue or black.

    Very nice looking babies! I am curious as to what kind of chicken that is in your avatar? She is pretty also.

    Quote:My avatar is my Snickers. She is a mixed bantam and a professional shoulder walker. She is 3 years old now. She has 2 daughters and a grandaughter that look almost identical. Not sure how my mutts ended up breeding true. The only difference is the offspring have some tuffs on their legs from Dot. He is also a mutt and only has a few feathers going down the out sides of his legs.

    They are part of my mutt lot. They are here for pure enjoyment.
