    Lookie what she brought outside with her [​IMG]

    Her last hatch (which was her first hatch ever) was disapointing - she had them during cold nasty winter, and only one survived at all (only two hatched, that time). This time she has 6 - three silver, one black and two white - one of the whites has a Z on it's head, gonna have to name it Zorro [​IMG]

    Jr. was the first chick ever hatched here at the farm - she is half bantam something~or~other and half oeg (LF).

    Quote:Her daddy is oeg, her mama is part oeg, and some buff columbian patterned banty. Her name is Junior [​IMG] she was supposed to be a roo (so I'd have a baby like her daddy) but she turned out to be a girl, and a good mama hen, too.
