    Show me your craziest mixed up poultry. I want to see how wacky the chicks look! Just fill out the form below and submit! The way to win is how many ovations each bird gets. I will not be giving ovations as I might run out, and I don't want to make it unfair to the people I can't give one to, sorry.

    Breeds of the parents: (pictures would be preferable, but not required)
    A picture of the chick/chicken
    The chicken's name (optional)


    I am probably going to mix a Golden-Duckwing Phoenix Rooster with a Buff-Lace Polish Hen. I hope they look great!
    This is the whole reason I decided to have the show is because of those two, have fun competing.

    Breeds of the parents: I go her from a feed store that said she was a Black Pullet layer, I realized she wasn't but I'm not sure on her heritage
    The chicken's name: Shirley


    (does this count even though I didn't breed her myself?)

    The egg this one hatched out of was supposed to be a Partridge Pekin Bantam (you guys call them Cochin Bantams). Turns out his mother had a fling with a Silver Duckwing Leghorn. Unfortunately we couldn't keep him (living in suburbia). This was him at 8 weeks old just before we found him a home. He was dumpy like a Pekin/Cochin bantam with fluffy legs, but with the lovely colours of the Silver Duckwing.

    He was such a cute chick too:

    This is fun! I have a 5 week old sweetie that I bought as an EE. I have NO idea what his/her parentage is, only what breeds this the hatchery I bought it from has (Black Copper Marin, Barnevelder, Ameraucana, Brahma, Welsummer, Cochin, Orpington, RIR and Dominique) So your guess is as good as mine, actually probably better!

    Here is Maisey, my 5 week old EE

    here he/she is at 3 weeks

    Maisey3wks.jpeg

    and at 2 days when we first brought her home

    By the way, if you think you can tell me what her mixture is from the list above, I would be happy to hear it!

    20170426_190216.jpg this is rainbow. Still not sure if it's a pullet or a roo yet. S/He is about 12 wks old I bought her/him from a local breeder. It's supposed to be an EE silkie mix. I bought 4 from the lady and they're all different colors and sizes. ☺ 20170403_202514.jpg This is rainbow at a 2-3 weeks old.
