    Lil background...these are my 9 yr old daughter chickens. She slipped some japanese blacktailed eggs, white cochin/a weird frizzle, and golden polish eggs under my brooder hen. Lo and behold, this afternoon while doing chores, guess who greeted us.

    Cute babies! Gotta love when broody hens hatch babies themselves. It's such a joy to watch them with their chicks!

    Also, I love that last rooster--he's stunning! He's a golden phoenix, right? [​IMG]

    Quote:Yes he is, he's just over 6 months old. She asked her grandfather for them for Christmas last year. So mid December Mr. Postman delivered 12 golden phoenix( who lived in our home most of the winter-gets to cold here as far as she is concerned. Now she is telling him & us she would like to have seramas or copper maran for her birthday in August. She sure knows how to work her grandfather. [​IMG]

    Quote:[​IMG] That's funny. I think Smartypants will give them the why fors and hows comes if anyone tries to claim her adopted children.

    Tho, I will share this...Parker is playing jokes on her chickens as she calls it. She slipped two turken eggs in her lil silkie box. This lil silkie is about a year old but only 1/2 the size of her other silkies. Teeny tiny lil thing and Parker puts turken eggs under her.[​IMG]...She will probably end up with chickens who have complexes!

    While I'm at it, what kind of hen (she's a standard not a bantam lil the peeps) is she, she has feathers down the side of her leg. She has a sister who is jet black...pretty lil hen too.
