Oh wow! She's adorable! Do you have a thread about her? I'd love to know more!
Thank you 🥰 No thread yet.. but I'm sure there will be one soon. She is literally hilarious.. just her walking about makes me giggle as she is so comical. A friendly girl.. with a lot of personality. She also produces stunning babies but since they are all born with huge vaulted skulls and she is a bit clumsy.. so far, I've been hand rearing her babies. She still needs maturing as a mother. Goes broody after every 12 eggs laid.. every time 🤣

Molly Mae. I think she is about 6 months old and this is her first clutch of 2 fully vaulted chicks. She is a wheaten Crested Ophir Bantam.. my own developing breed. I have included pics of one of her chicks.. coz cuuuute.. and coz you may need a lil distraction before getting back to judging all the gorgeous girls entered🤣

She is being a really good mummy.. but keeping a close eye coz these crested birds can be clumsy.. and the vault makes the chicks much more delicate to knocks and kicks than a hard smooth skull

Wishing you all a delightfully chook filled Saturday 🥰

Here is Kaitlyn, my buff laced polish pullet. She is 4.5 months old, loves to make weird noises and scream, and look beautiful. Her mom is a silver laced polish and her dad is a buff laced, but you can't tell at all that she has the silver laced in her. It's all buff laced pattern! 😂

This is her on our roof the other day-

My camera did something to this picture again 🤪 IMG_20211013_122905795.jpg IMG_20211013_123004327.jpg

And her getting ready to fly off. I almost got a picture of her flying but the camera didn't take in time. ☹️ IMG_20211013_123031842.jpg

She has a brother, PJ, too, and he really dwarfs her! 🤪

This is Loki! She's a Spotted call duck, 13 weeks old! She adores the shower and is super spunky, and is cool with letting new people hold her, especially if there are meal worms involved! She had angel wing at first, but it's all better!
