    This is Olivia. Livvie is almost two years old. She, along with her look-alike sisters, were a happy accident. Kate, Tux and Olivia were supposed to be pure Barred Rocks, but my friend's elderly rooster, a standard Cochin/Silkie cross, wasn't infertile after all, LOL. He sired these three girls then soon after, died of an apparent heart attack. So, my Poufy-Head sisters are Cochin/Silkie x Barred Rock. Livvie was broody this past year for the first time and raised three chicks, one of them my second-in-command BR rooster, Mace. Wouldn't sell these three girls for any amt of money. Livvie has the wildest zig-zag comb of the three.

    This is a BTW Japeneese and quail antwerp belgiam cross. Probably a second or third generation. Her name is foxy and is my cutest chicken. Fun Fact: I have no idea why she's gold. Around one year old.

    Quote:I know but one of them got loose so I ended up hatching a bunch of these, luckily I have slow ducks down by the pond, so the aligator got them and I ended up with this, not sure if its a boy or girl, I havent been able to get close enough to check. but it love to eat those bunnychicks, dont know what I will do when they are all gone. the good thing is it protects all the ducks, guess its not sure which one is MOM????
