    At 10 weeks? Seriously? What breed is Willow?

    i got 8 fertile egg from my farmer friend up the road because i don't have a roo---he has some very large RIR's----almost giagantic looking to me-- i have a red named lucy and she's smaller than my Buff orpingtons
    ---willow was alsoo the only chick hatched---my very first baby chick ever ---suzy my speckled sussex is raising 3 chicks from the same flock--i plan to keep one that i named button---a beautiful mixture of a mahogany red , dark brown ,tan a chestnut color and a tinge of buff---now---buffy my other BO went broody a few days ago and is sitting on 12 eggs from my farmer friend---unless there is a special chick - i plan to give them back to al ,---i just love seeing baby chicks with their moms
    i am also going to try and get my daughter to come up with her good camera and take some picks---maybe i can send them to one of the moderatoators to post for me​
