    I have decided to make a thread for my flocks! These are my flocks:

    Chesta's flock: Lupin (standard barred Cochin cockerel), Lil Chipmunk (OEGB cockerel), Chesta (OEGB/Japanese bantam/Leghorn/serama hen)

    Hen flock: Olive (faverolle mix hen), Crystal (red Cochin hen), Pepper (orange laced black Cochin hen), Eagle Eye (light Brahma hen), Raspberry (Leghorn or Rhode island red hen), Rosey (OEGB/Japanese bantam/Leghorn hen), Rocket (OEGB/Japanese bantam/Leghorn hen), Dusty (mixed breed roo)

    Rooster flock: Griffin (Olive's brother), Pumpkin (mixed breed roo), Frosty (mixed breed roo), Huckleberry (Rosey's brother), Finny (Rosey's brother)

    NOTE: all my chickens are bantams, except Lupin. Griffin and Olive are medium sized.

    Ya, I'm really sad. :( She was mother to Rocket and grandmother to Huckleberry, Finny, Rosey, and Chesta.

    IMG_20170608_181126159.jpg Could anyone help me tell if Raspberry is a Leghorn or a Rhode island red? She lays off-white eggs and has gone broody. IMG_20170608_181213355.jpg

    IMG_20170608_181332351.jpg I have decided to put 2 of Chesta's eggs under my Broody hens, Pepper and Crystal. The father could be Frosty or Lupin. This is Frosty:

    What a cute flock! I love that picture that you posted on another thread of Lupin laying down and Lil chipmunk under him like he was a mama hen. Frosty is a beautiful rooster. I think Raspberry is an RIR, but I'm not sure. She's pretty though. I'm sorry about Lil Chick. She is very pretty.

    Thanks! I really love Frosty's coloring, I hope he's the father of the 2 eggs I put under my broodies.

    He looks like a Bantam rooster. Is he? What kind?
