    Hi,
    Here is "Blackie" yes i know its an original name, but the name has stuck!
    She follows me everywhere, she is an auntie to all the baby chicks, she even protected me from my rooster.
    She's the most easygoing chook!
    You can see she has a "kind" eye!!!

    Yes, I do see the "kind eye". Kind of "soft and sweet". I don't have an eye like that in my adopted flock, but maybe someday I will.

    I put her pic in picturetrail and put some bling on her comb!

    She is very sweet looking. I have a hen that is my "baby" as well. She loves to sit in my lap, and always wants me to carry her around. I think she is a little spoiled! LOL

    I have 2 black sex links. Wow, Nessa has the largest eggs I've ever seen in my life! She's really friendly too, but always looking for a treat. I thought of incubating her eggs, but what would pop out...Super Chick?
