    Eeek! They look like Tweety bird, with those cheeks! I just LOVE it!!! My favorite thing about Sultan chicks! Look at those faces! They need pinching! Except that they're so darn small IRL, LOL

    I love how chicks just drop asleep, it's too cute!

    I thought Elizabeth Watts brought them to England from Turkey? Doesn't matter, either way, great names [​IMG] It's nice to remember people so long from the past, no?

    Yah, I just double checked on Wikipedia, she imported them to GB according to Wikipedia. She's still a cool lady even if she isn't a compatriot, LOL.

    I guess it got too cold. I let my OEG Lemon Blue Hen to take of it and she does a great job at raising chicks for me. I believe that it couldn't find its way back to the walk way.
