Pippin's Flock thread!.png


I have made a new flock thread!
I will share stories, pictures and important updates.

I raise bantams as pets in my large sub-urban backyard. My flock is family, and I love small, friendly, unusual breeds. Enjoy the thread!

Basil was a white frizzle polish pullet. She was one of Pippin's 1st chicks and the only girl. Unfortunately, she died at the age of 2 months.
RIP June 2021- August 2021

Kiwi, the cuddly chick. He was very friendly and fluffy. He was rehomed with Pickles, where they live together, free ranging and all!

Clover was one of Pippin's chicks, the 1st born. He was rehomed at 3-4 months old, to a good home where he is being used for breeding.

Fries

IMG-20210405-WA0006.jpg


I bought (September 2020) Fries when she was 6 months old, with her sister, Pippin. She had the honour of laying the first egg of my chicken keeping experience!
She's not really very cuddly, but she tolerates it. She's not the most outgoing and social girl, prefering the company of her sister only. She's probably middle in the pecking order.

Fries' sister and "the mama", she is top of the pecking order. She loves to be broody, she raised 3 polish in June, and just hatched another (to be revealed).
She's not a cuddly girl, but will come up close it food's involved! She is quite loud and social.
She's such a drama queen, if she doesn't get what she wants, she'll scream (bakaa bakaa bakaa!) Until I come.

Ginger

Ginger is... Well... Weird.
He's quite "cooky", blind and wobbly. He doesn't crow, or mate.
He loves to follow you around, but he's not the one for cuddles.
He doesnt really have a place in the pecking order, when I think about it, he just pecks his way to the food (never pecks the ladies!) Greedy guy!
He's SUPER protective over Raven. He chased and pecked Darwin when he tried to mate her!

Darwin (nickname: toilet brush)
20210928_075505_HDR.jpg

He's another of Pippin's polish. I'm afraid I'll have to rehome him soon. He's quite skittish, but not aggressive. He's quite funny as well.
Ginger doesn't really like him very much so Darwin is quite scared of him. As a chick, my dad called him toilet brush, because he's a frizzle.
