    I have 2 OEGBs that are broody. I was checking under them the other day and discovered that my silkie has been slipping her eggs under them. So I candled them on a whim. Sure enough, they're developing. The only roo the little silkie has been in contact is a buckeye.

    That's going to be some wacky chickens if they manage to hatch!

    What's the craziest breed mixes you've had?

    Well this is my first ever mixed breed chicken unless you count Easter Eggers. Her name is Charlotte and she is a Golden Sebright and Old English Game Bantam mixed pullet. 11CD238E-3478-475B-8250-BC1FC222ED5D.jpeg

    This is Mayhem. She is the product of a black EE hen and my frizzled silkie roo. She has long feathered legs and is pretty silly looking ,but I love her. Screenshot_20180531-104509.png

    1/8 Asil, 1/8 Ga Noi, 1/4 American Game and half wyandotte. The asil side throws better lacing from the wyandotte side. Crazy thing raised four broods a year. Five one year. I sold her to a guy and she is still raising chicks.

    She's very pretty, nothing cuter than a mama hen with baby chicks. Especially when they start getting as big as the mama and still insist on riding on her back and nestling underneath her.
