    Last fall I hatched 3 eggs from my 'bator. Their father is a bantam Brahma roo and there mother is a standard RIR. I have one roo and 2 hens. I think they are so neat looking. Notice in the pic how stocky and short the hens are. They have one small line of feathers down their legs in the front.

    The only thing I'm dissappointed with is even with being hand raised, they are really wild. The rest of my flock is tame, but I can't get near these 3.

    I love the look of the hens tail. When the light hits it it's green.
