    I got her from a neighbour a few years ago who thought she'd make a good pet for my daughter. She's a fairly good layer and the only one of my chickens that will sit on her eggs. Since she has raised a couple chicks now, I'm trying to figure out what genes I'm mixing with the rooster. The pics don't show it too well, but she has feathered legs/feet. (the roo at her side is father of the chicks).

    Silkie mix. Not sure what she's mixed with. They make the best mothers.

    She's a great mother. I've seen the rooster run from her (and he's pretty aggressive and dominant). And when she was sitting on eggs the dog would make a wide berth around her area.
