    Mine have been broody fairly often, not always when I want them to be! Right now, nobody is inclined that way.

    I have one Fleur D'Uccle and had brought a day old male porcelain to raise up to be a friend, but sadly he did not thrive and passed away. I've been itching to add a couple more D'Uccle's to my flock, I love my quirky little Princess.

    Princess actually featured in our wedding photos! (disclaimer: her full name is Princess Psycho Pants because she is a bit of a nut about picking on the hens with more submissive personalities... The fact that they are at least three times her size does not slow her down one bit. I also channel my inner three year old when naming chickens.)

    And I actually now have three more pullets and a cockerel Mille Fleur D'Uccle that I picked up over the weekend who are about a month old. They're in quarantine right now, but when that's over I'll be introducing them to Princess and Penguin (Mottled Cochin bantam).

    I just wanted update with a picture of the babies I picked up last week(ish). I haven't named them yet, collectively I call them the Beeps because that's what their chatter sounds like to me, except the Rooster is called Revenge.

    (Actually, his full name is "My husband brought a backhoe, so behold my Mighty Revenge"... Mighty Revenge, or Mr. for short. I'm hoping for a big personality in a tiny floofy footed package.)

    Thanks! My husband really hopes the little roo has a big enough personality to be re-named "The General."

    (Even though the cockerel's name is Revenge, his arrival was negotiated as part of the discussion about acquiring a back hoe.)

    They're starting to warm up with me and chortle up to my feet when I'm sitting around outside. Too cute.
