Yes. I noticed when i took the pic that she is looking lovely. Her name is going to be Carol.

I dont usually name my chickens, well, only a couple that stand out, but this little flock is my favorite.

I name my chooks .easier to keep the pedigree .
I don t like number even they do have them . I know my chooks by name .

Im beginning to feel better about these chicks. Thank you. I was really worried how they were looking.

I am told they are a mixture of Bev Davis, Wade Jeane, Greenfire Farm. The breeder combined and made their own line.

I can tell they are a mixture of many lines .they are not uniform like line #1 .good thing for you ,you want the genetic diversity to start your line .
you don t want to keep some one else line ,you have to blend you own line . breed out what is not good and breed true the good traits .regardless of witch line they come from .

short type are Bev S Marans .
