    i havent named this little one yet. but i was wondering, is there a way to tame up these cute babies when they are being raised by an actual chicken and not me? sheba is the mom, she is a golden polish. momma is pretty tame i guess, but wont let me near them.. inles im wearing gloves [​IMG]

    however, i put eggs under her that were full blooded buff orpington, golden polish x buff orpington, buff orpington x rhode island red, and poss buff orpington x barred rock


    i think this one is a rhode island red x buff orpington.. what do yall think?


    thanks!
