Hi all, glad to find a forum with people that share my interest, I've been a chicken lover on and off for several years! Here are a few pictures of our flock a mixed breed found here in Dar-es-salaam of the variety you guys would call Mutts! Our two junior roosters, we gave one away and the other was pretty mean to the chicks so he ended up in the cooking pot! Our second broody pullet with her chicks Whizz who got his name from whizzing away from the frame every time you want to take his picture! and Brown, who sadly passed away. Another picture of the late Brown.. A picture of part of the nine (we had ten chicks from this brood, 1 died and 9 were left!) staring at some perceived threat in the sky! Sadly, this little chick was carried off by a crow before we could name it.. A picture of a more grown up Whizz! At this stage he had been abandoned by his mum and left to fend for himself.. Chokoraa (Urchin) The only survivor of a brood of seven, you saw a picture of her sibling that was carried of by a crow above..at this stage she had also been abandoned by her mum.. Our broody pullet sitting on her second clutch of eggs, we also put in 3 eggs from a cross between our Red Sex Link hen and our patriarch rooster of which one hatched! Sticky the first chick to hatch at 19 days, the picture below will explain how he got his name! There, you can clearly see it on his head, a pattern of a stick man! Sticky and his siblings on day 20, you can see the little all yellow red sex link crossed chick who also hatched at 19 days in the picture. A picture of the brood in their new home, we decided to lock them up until they are fairly grown in an effort to prevent loss from disease and predation. Preparing for bedtime, the brood at 3 days old! Sticky and siblings at 2 weeks!
