    So happy! Our little hen that came from Big Mama (a Grey Japanese Bantam ( Deceased (Her Babies were Mutts:D ) laid 8 eggs and could have about 4 different fathers. The 9th egg came from our odd (I don't know the color but it looks like it has V-shaped scales that are grey and the rest is white) Japanese or Serama hen. She chased the ducks away and sat on their egg and then laid her own egg but dissed it and other hens took it and then ditched it. So, I took that egg (still warm:D) and put it into the nest:D All the eggs are cream colored and some are light brown and the whitest egg is from the Japanese or Serama:D So excited! We also just got a pair of Buff Laced Polish and they laid an egg so we hope it's fertile cuz we're collecting them to incubate but we only have one:(
