    is the tablespoon chick the first one? have you been able to reproduce tablespoon from tablespoon or do you have to start with the x each time?

    very cute by the way!

    Quote:Bertha is "officially" a Silver Seabright. I was just giving the colors to show who was who.

    Very cute picture.

    Bertha is not a silver sebright. I breed them, and she is not one. She might be a sliver sebright mix, but not pure.
