    speedbird Chillin' With My Peeps

    Hey guys I know this is news that should have been broken earlier but I was on a hiatus from byc. Last spring, I witnessed seeing a hen sitting on baby chicks for the first time in my life as I proudly became a grandpa! (and i am only in middle school!) Since then the chicks have left the hen and are doing great! I also have had another broody with her chicks! Whats the best part: both of the fathers are Silkies! What does that mean? Well, 1 it means we get cute baby chickens with feathered feet and 5 toes (I got a barred chicken like that) and two: SILKIES!!!!! I love silkies :p (will post pics some-other time)
