    Soooo adorable!! Are momma and babies Old English game bantams? Momma looks just like my beloved Miss Gold that I lost to a fox last year. I always get nostalgic when I see a hen that looks like her.

    Thanks so much everyone, I'm so proud of my Dovey. Best little bantam mama.
    birdlover, I don't know what breed she is. Her babies are mixed, the father is a RIR bantam & some of the babies are hers but some are from another bantam hen of unknown breed. [​IMG]
