    One of my hens has gone broody and hatched her first brood this week. She had a few of her own eggs (she's a golden-laced wyandotte), two from the easter egger, and then two from our bantam bwc polish hen. The catch is that the father is the proud, surly RIR roo, Moses, that's staring you down from my profile picture.

    The wyandotte and easter egger mixes I have seen before, what I'm interested/worried/intrigued about is what this teeny-tiny guy is going to look like when they grow up. Does anyone have any idea?

    Adorable!

    I've had bantam x standard mixes and they tend to be in between in size, which is kind of nice because they aren't delicate like a full bantam chick can be but don't take up as much space or eat as much food.
