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!
