    We decided that from Hawkeye's past interactions with chicks and youngsters in the flock that it was safe to allow them out into the pen with him. I keep him locked away from the girls alot of the day due to them picking on his comb and wattles, injured from fighting with Suede through the fence. I got some pics of him with his son 11-wk old son Gabriel and 7 wk old daughter, Zoe, that I love and wanted to share. Zoe is a hoot. She beats up all the boys and wanted to play with daddy, too, LOL. Forgive Hawkeye's condition. He's still in molt, plus as soon as new saddle feathers grow, one of his girls, Olivia, pulls them out. Nagging women!

    I LOVE that second pic, where Zoe is pecking around under Hawkeye's feet! He is such a good guy! Is that an Ameraucana in there?

    Yep, that's one of Scout's daughters that will be leaving on the 26th of this month. There are actually 13 chicks in that coop the pen is attached to, but it was only in the 30's today and most didn't really want to come outside.

    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    I love how proud he looks with his little ones running around! Like Daddy, Big Brother, and Little Sister. Little sister is the feisty one. Hey that sounds like my husband and kids! [​IMG]

    They are gorgeous!

    He's a really good boy, that's for sure. I look at Gabe and see what Hawkeye would probably look like if he hadn't been neglected, tortured and starved during his pre-me life. He's the best. [​IMG]
