Aww, how cute! Well I hope that your chicken adventures are all great!

Yeah, I'm thinking of pulling the eggs in a week or two and trying to get her to take day olds and incubate the eggs myself. Poor girl, this is her 5th attempt this summer and something (mice probably) always eat her eggs. I wish she would let me just pen her up so they were all safe

Aww, well I hope they all hatch and nothing eats them... The poor thing

The husband finally agreed to let me do heritage meat birds, so this is our modest flock (lost a few to cocci) of Barbezieux: View attachment 2275696
We don't shy away from naming meaties, so this flock includes Big Chungus (big roo), Huckleberry (lil roo), Queenie, Blackberry and Chuck/Charlotte (Mr. insists it's a roo but I beg to differ).

We also brought on 3 mosaics because we heard great things about them and, uhm, it's all true. They are the most personable, chill birds we've had. View attachment 2275697
Lily is my husbands favorite, but we also hold Star and Apollo in high regards.

And our big girls in their (slightly) younger days:

L to R - Bluebell the Andalusian, Daisy the Marans mix, Clover the Barnevelder and Poppy the Buff Orp.

Chickens are all good birds! Chicken tending is a good hobby/lifestyle. Viva la chicken peeps!
By the way, where did you get your mosaics? I've been looking for some eggs to hatch that aren't 40 bucks a piece like their creator hatchery wants
