    I got so lucky on this hatch. I had 4 eggs on 2 made it to day 18 and I got a boy and a girl. They are 6 weeks old now. I just love these little things. They are so tiny and so cute!!!

    [​IMG] I'm planning on adding this breed to my flock just as soon as I can. Are they a gentle breed and are they good sitter's? I think they are really unusual looking and so beautiful, but of course I think all breed's are beautiful. My poor old man spend's all his day's off building me coop's and never complain's. He know's how happy my bird's make me. I'm disabled & have all day to spend with my bird's and often do. The problem is I'm getting bird's faster than he can build. lol:lol: PEACE

    They are very docile to me and I love them!

    As for sitters, I have not had ONE that would set eggs for me nor any inclination of being broody. Some breeders have better luck than others.
