    a young 11 yr old boy near me raises chickens and when he has 'extras' he give me a call to see if i would like to purchase them. well, how could i resist these three? (and the price...a whole $8. how could i turn the young man down?)

    There's that cutie! As soon as we saw her, I knew she fit you perfectly! Just looking at her brings a smile to my face and a chuckle in my tummy! [​IMG]

    her comb kills me! it is like you took a leghorn and squished it down REALLY small!

    she talks NON stop...chip chip chip this, chip chip chip that.

    they all three LOVE carrots!

    Quote:nope....not yet....suggestions are accepted!

    Shelleyb1969 thought Road Runner might be appropriate for the cockerel.

    any ideas?

    thanks, Deb!

    she is super little. they are some crazy mutt chickies, but i just loved them from the second i saw them. they are all VERY chatty.

    she comes out whenever i take the cover off the brooder and hangs out on the other brooders looking around. supervising, maybe?

    Dolly is a good girl! she keeps herself out of trouble, but i could see her being an instigator!
