Is Bonnie part Game?

    I have always wondered what breeds Bonnie has in her. She was supposed to be just a frizzle mutt, but turned out to be very beautiful - though still a mutt. She went broody at 24 weeks old and started laying at 18 weeks. Her eggs are very tiny and nearly the same colour as a silkie egg, but smaller. She may weigh 2 pounds at most. [​IMG] She's flighty - when I kicked her out of her nest, she always flew up to the trees and screamed at me. Currently not broody any more, and the eggs she sat on for 2 weeks are being taken care of by a broody silkie. She left them for a full day before I noticed. They were stone cold. After 3 hours in an incubator, they were moving around. Thank goodness I have a broody to hatch them, because my incubator is full of eggs that are only 5 days in!

    That's what I thought :) The vet who vaccinated her thought she looked part Phoenix.

    [​IMG] Here she is with her hatch mates right before she started laying. She was the first to lay. [​IMG] Her pretty little face :p [​IMG] So any idea what else she has in there? :)

    But she is not extremely small like the OEGB I've seen. She does seem to have the look of them though. Either way, she will be a great hen for raising babies :)

    Which other one are you talking about. I've only posted single pictures of Bonnie and 1 group shot. There is one in the group shot that came from the same place, but looks different and is bigger. [​IMG] [​IMG] Actually there is one more that came from the same breeder. [​IMG]
