    My Own Realm!!!
    I just wanted to put up a post about what has happened with me and my chooks over the time. my love for chooks started when grandma got sick:hit
    i had to feed the 12 old old old thousand more olds laying hens. which layed eggs so big they could not fit into the egg carton! over the time some have died:hit

    so my uncle bill gave me a hen so buitiful she is. now the mother of Romeo, Juliet and Snowfire.[​IMG] i called her Billi. Then so she had friends they got a brahma and
    buff orpington, bantam size. all three were bantam size. they bonded like long lost sisters![​IMG]

    later from new south wales (billi was gotten from new south wales too) i got little coraki a cute sebright. [​IMG] and with her came carey. the rooster. which uncle bill
    said was a mix. but he looks like a legbar x.

    i put him with my brahma called pretty and got six eggs. those eggs were put under broody hen billi. you should have seen me when they hatched:jumpy:celebrate:celebrate!!
    grandma thought i had a spaz attack and mum got a screaming message on her phone. hehe:ya

    they actually hatched a day early......i think.

    so those three hatched. a male and two females. the others didn't. two were unfertile and the other had died in the egg. so little Romeo got to grow up and have a fight
    with his dad and jump the rest of the girls:lau when snowfire and juliet got to lay thier eggs i was so eggcited!!!

    then for my birthday i got two white silkie hens and later on i got a fantastic white $10 silkie rooster. sadly Coraki my sebright was killed by a wild cat:hit R.I.P.

    So that was a very quick adventure of my chooks. more than that happened. way more. hope everyone has a good day:weee
