    I am excited to introduce Marilyn, a Splash Orpington Roo/Easter Egger Hen cross chick. I *think*hope* her color is blue. Brooded for 18 days by Ruby (Bantam Cochin), brooded for 3 days by Aflack (Call Duck mix) hatched September 8, 2009, Marilyn lives alone in the house. I tried for three days to bond Marilyn to Ruby, but Ruby would peck Marilyn viciously when Marilyn would come out from under Ruby.

    I see you have a Grey!! Me too. He would freak if I brought one of the big girls in to visit. Only thing my chickies are missing is talking like my parrots! Can you imagine all the girls trying to talk at once ;-)

    Oh there is no doubt they could do it in a heartbeat. If mine can fool me with my husband's voice, they can do the chicken.[​IMG]
