    So I just got off the phone with Ideal (the hatchery that I bought the babies from) and the reason my "Crested" Khaki Campbell does not have what appears to be a crest is because they entered the wrong order code, so I got a smooth Khaki Cambell...which is fine, as my black runners arrived with crests (the don't actually explicitly sell crested black but get some hatched out once and a while and I asked them to send crested if they happened to hatch on our hatch day!!!) So Rose and Violet appear to be crested so I am thrilled. Little Fern (the Campbell) is just as pretty and sweet as can be! I have to give a great deal of credit to IDEAL HATCHERY, as they communicate beautifully and they are refunding the price of Fern as it was their mistake in the order process, even though I told them it was not necessary. I highly recomend ordering from them!

    each baby took a solo snooze with the mama! each would be peeeeeeeping away and antzy...and I would tuck them into the hehemmmm-cleavage-and gently hold a hand over them for about 15 seconds, and out cold nappy time for 5-10 minutes! So stinking cute!!!!
