    Here's Homer

    Homer was named after the Simpsons character, LOL mainly because I've always thought she was a little on the "thick" side. She goes broody on about anything and everything and can put my silkeis to shame! Here are 2 silkie chicks she managed to hatch all by herself. She is wildly protective but also cana be really funny.

    Homer is a feral pigeon who one day discovered our pigeon coop and decided to never leave. After getting rid of most of our flock so we could make the transition into chicken breeding she was one of the very few we kept. As of now she's a very old, greying gal with a ferocious appetite... I atrribute this to the name as well! [​IMG]
