    Hi guys

    Some help pretty please! Our one cochin bantam wetn broody and we went and gone some fertilized eggs. Just a mix bunch. We are thinking this little guy is a bantam of some kind.

    Thanks!! We love him to bits. His mom past away on Friday, after what we think was some kind of respiratory infection. So sad. Took her to the vet, but sadly she didn't make it. So this little guy is getting spoilt rotten by the kids. Hope the neighbours don't complain.....
