    I forgot to add Cat Stevens to my list...

    Thank you! When I was looking for hatching eggs, bearded was a requirement! :)

    Probably one of the coolest things I've seen! I can tell by her eyes that she really was getting mad at you! So has she tried to feed the chick? Are you keeping starter feed in there? So adorable!

    She hasn't fed it yet. I have food and water in there. She got off it once to eat, but then she saw me and got back on it.

    But, man... are they hard to candle. Even worse than those blue, green or chocolate!

    Silkie: What's she gonna do next week when it's bigger than her? I bet that chick would grow real well on pidgeon regurg. What's that called? Milk? I bet that chick would hurt her if it tried to feed from her in the normal pidgeon chick fashion. That's what I call thinking outside the box, re: incubtion!

    Lazy, I may remove the chick if Eleanor does something not good for it or such. Baby pigeons (squeakers) know to hold their beaks open for mama or pop. I don't think the chick would do that. :idunno I have a broody silkie I could probably stick it under. The chick will be tiny. It's a silkie/EE/silkie mix.

    Same here. Besides my egg layers I may get all new SLW and BCM and sell everything I have in the spring as egg layers. Except maybe one cockerel.

    Thank you. We put a great deal of thought into their names....lol

    Which question? The "what one band would you choose" or "can we pick one for each genre"?? lol
