    I am posting some pictures of my newest baby. He/she was born early this morning. The mother is a mixed silkie, (not pictured) and the father is a barnyard mixed. What ever it is, I still think it's beautiful.

    One of these guys is the father of the new baby

    This is acting mom. No one knows what breed she is. She's mean too!

    The mom looks almost identical to my black sex-link.

    She's been broody a couple of times and this is her first time with a baby. I had 3 eggs to begin with because I wanted to have a few more chicks that would hopefully lay the chocolate colored eggs. (I was hoping for girls) But the other 2 eggs got broken somehow. Actually I didn't think the egg was going to hatch. This is my second baby so I'm happy with it. As far as mama goes, well so far she's been a good mom and very protective.
