    no, I didnt give her a name. I have been sitting out there watching her and she is keeping a close eye on me as well. chickens dont do that. I mean , she is like really watching every move i made. All the chickens are ignoring her except a tiny seebright hen. she is flaring her tail and wings at her. I think she may be thinking of going broody. I took an old loaf of wheat bread out there and she acted starved for it. must of ate 2-3 pcs. her legs are very orange.

    she also sits very low to the ground. looks like her bottom is full of eggs.. On a sad note , the serama didnt make it. I really didnt think it would. way too long of a sit. and then cold to warm , turned wrong. didnt have a lot going for it. I have no idea about the rest of the eggs but i would think they would all be the same.

    OMG granny girl, you've really went and did it this time ~ a duck? Are you going quackers on us now lol. Thought I wanted some last year, but have since changed my mind. My niece has ducks and they're pretty messy HaHa. Here's to hoping that your little lady will be a doll [​IMG] At least this next spring you won't have to fill in the water holes in the chicken run with wood shavings. Your duck will love them! What is a JG by the way? I'm terrible with all those chicken abviations. Sorry about your little Serama baby [​IMG].

    :woot woot twisted, that's a bunch of chicks. What will you do with all the SLW roosters? I thought I was cuckoo with 24 adult birds, 15 assorted aged chicks & 48 fertile eggs in the bator due to hatch on Mother's Day Lol. Just kidding on the cuckoo part, I actually am light this year. Last spring at this time I had 78 baby chicks plus 11 adults. The things we do to stay busy lol.

    Granny I'm sorry about the baby. :( i would love to start hatching but I know I would be addicted, and I'm not sure I could cull chicks even if they needed it. Maybe if I had to I would find that I could, though. Yay for a duck, how fun! I love the idea of ducks but I don't know if they are for me. I do love them though. :)

    Actually @twisted-acres-farm (and anyone else, obviously!!) I could use your input on my light brahma, since you've had a lot of those before, and anyone else for that matter! I didn't have any roo suspicions until a week or so ago but now I am questioning the gender on mine. It flies and postures at everyone these days, all day long. Is kind of a loner. Head feathers are finally just starting to come in at almost 5 weeks. Here are some photos that I took (and I did post them in the gender forum, but wanted to post them here too). These are from Tuesday at exactly 4 weeks old, I can take some new ones but there isn't much change. Opinions? Pea comb has 3 rows instead of 1. :/ This is Lightening Speed...

    Showing the tail shape... it does have a good sized tail and not just a fluffy ball...

    Also tried to get one of the legs but you can't really see them in any photos. Legs are definitely thick. But it's a large breed, so maybe this is normal?? Any and all opinions welcome. :)

    I have been sitting here waiting for a good dark so i could go check the others. I fell asleep for just a min. with this thing on my leg. My leg is hot . hahaa anyway, went to go look and without a sound a couple of them have the external pip. they have to be close to 30 days. others are still moving. I will probably wake up to a couple of them.[​IMG] NOW I dont want to count my chickens. looking for splay leg and i suck at fixing that.
