This is ugly. She was born on1/1/2010. The black copper marans were born 1/15/2010. I had to put her in with them because she is not doing well with the other chicks. She is almost the same size as the new borns. Her neck is longer and legs but the body is almost the same size. I have a couple of pictures so you can see how very tiny she is. She should be twice that size by now. Course she is a silky frizzle mix called sizzle. I plan to keep a weekly journal here with pictures as she grows. If she grows. This is her with the new chicks: 1-17-2010 Week two with the new chicks. I do notice a little change. She is getting more feathers around her bottom. I think she is going to be ok. She did grow a little. The little black copper marans babies love her. They all flock to her when I feed and water them. She's so cute. She will peck me a little if I pick one up to check on their progress. She is just way too protective at this age. I wonder what she will be like in a couple of months from now. She will probably rip my finger off. 1-22-2010 1-29-2010: She is starting to grow feathers now. She looks a lot better than the first week. The frizzle is 5 weeks old and the black copper maran is 2 weeks old. They are the same size now. Next week the bcm will be bigger. I hope you will open the last picture up and see how silly she looks. 2-5-2010 She is looking pretty good this week. A lot more feathering. She is starting to look like a chicken with a Mohawk. She has a very large beak. Not at all attractive. She looks a little like a cross between Mr.T and Jimmy Durante. I do call it a her but I have my doubts.
