    I just want to let those of you who know of my sizzle chick, Sparky...well, she has 10 new friends! [​IMG] I'm now calling Sparky a "she" because 1) I'm hoping she's a girl [​IMG] and 2) the pendulum trick indicated she's a girl [​IMG] .
    I got 5 light brahma bantams and 4 blue cochin bantams from Ideal today, plus I had a Salmon Favorelle bantam hatch this morning.
    Miss Sparky is being such a great big sis to all of the little ones. She's actually teaching them a lot, and it's so cute to watch her "groom" them. I'm so proud of her! [​IMG]
