I can totally relate. Sitting outside with my daughter and watching my birds is my favorite thing to do, no doubt. Just wait until she starts wanting silkies, seramas, etc....... Oh my gracious! That's what got me into trouble. At 50 and counting, we still don't have the breed that she's named her "unicorn" breed (unicorn - highly sought after, feels impossible to acquire). She wants Showgirls. Just a warning, if you're curious, Google "showgirl chickens". They're one of those breeds that you either love or hate and possibly even think "why". It's basically a naked neck silkie. I think they're absolutely adorable in their own way. I recently incubated and hatched a silkie that in my opinion, is the cutest thing I've ever laid eyes on. My Dad that isn't really a chicken person, actually loves this bird. Her name is "Fancy Nancy". She's too flipping cute! Then again, not everyone loves silkies. That's the beauty of this community

I knew at least one was a boy. It was painfully obvious at a week old (his name is actually "KnotHead" hahaha~most embarrassing name ever for such an intelligent guy. He is the good guy out of the 3). I took what was leftover and hoped for the best on the other two.
Good for you for taking the little guy!

Shhhhh! I haven't heard "but I still need showgirls, mom. You've got most of your favorite breeds. I'll help and take care of them, I promise!" in several days now. Oddly enough, I'm wanting some now. We still haven't sexed the last 14 chicks plus, all but 2 are crested and a crested bird is my weakness. I flipping love crested birds! :-( Seriously, I don't even want to admit to the number of roosters and cockerels I have. I heard one of the little chicks practicing his crow this morning....... Cutest thing EVER!

One of my roosters has a cute crow. The Rock rooster has a crow that will wake the dead 😂
