    Dark Brahma Hen here..... We call her "Fancy Pants" which means she was lucky enough to be named, and cannot be eaten.... Huge bird.. soooo friendly.

    My first one was a Silver Spangled Hamburg roo. The second time I ordered from them I said on the order form that I didn't want the extra 'rare breed' chick....mainly because I already had a roo that I liked and didn't want another. So instead of a rare breed chick I was sent an extra Buff Orp cockerel chick. [​IMG]

    My free bird was a Blue Andalusian roo. He turned out to be an absolute freak and went to auction!
