    This one is Either BR or RIR X S.S. Hamburg
    I think this one is pure BR (Maybe a roo)

    Quote:Just as defensive a momma as ever. She bit me this morning for sticking my hand in to pet one of the little ones (our BR x Leghorns like to have their chests rubbed)! And she was just looking at me, like, "My babies. Keep your hands out." Not a hard bite, but definitely a warning.

    I kind of miss her sweet face around here, both her and Hazel. Glad they're doing well!

    Quote:She's doing great!
    I've been letting her do what her instincts tell her, she turns the bowl of chick starter over so the chicks have to scratch. [​IMG]

    She has house trained herself, in the 33 days she has been in the crate she has not defecated in the crate, not even once.
    I only take her out for a 10 minute potty break twice a day and she does her thing then wants to go back in before the 10 minutes are up.

    Good broodies are amazing to watch. I'm so happy Iris is a great mom!
