    This pic I took at a show, so the momma's name I don't know, but they are all BRs. There is more than one chick but this was the one riding on her back.

    Here's a picture of Mina's fluffy butt, with her little brood. Mina was a mixed breed hen. Sadly, she's no longer with us. [​IMG]

    She hatched 4 Dominique chicks.
