    I posted a couple of weeks ago about introducing my new chicks to my old biddies, worrying about aggression only to find 2 of the buff orpington chicks under one cornish hen's wing one evening. I finally got pictures - not with the buff orpingtons, but a columbian wyandotte. Adorable!![​IMG] Also - please help me identify the white one next to the snuggled pair - she looks like a leghorn, but has blue/gray feet. The rest on the perch are a few more pullets.

    Cornish rock? And OMG that second pic is too cute for words! The mothering instinct is powerful.

    Our Ameraucanas have blue-grey legs/feet. We have a white one that looked a lot like that white one when she was younger. Now she has a bit of a ruff growing around her upper neck and cheeks.

    Great pics. Thanks.

    That gives me hope too. I just mixed my flocks earlier this week. It's been a long process. But last night, one of the teenagers was trying to snuggle in with an older chicken. So cute!

    Your white hen looks like ameraucana to me. I have several that are solid white with grey-green legs.

    Cute pictures!!
