    So I didn't really get anything for my birthday yesterday LOL, but, I found my hen sitting on her clutch of eggs! These will be my first chicks if all goes well. She is sitting on 2 golden duckwing OEGB, 2 Pumpkin/Turken bantam F1 cross, and 9 standard game chicken. Hopefully everyone hatches because I really need those bantams! I am going to be starting a new project breeding game banties. Well anyways sorry for the ramble I'm just really excited for these chicks! :D And yes I'll be sure to spam you guys with pictures when they hatch LOL

    Thank you! :)
    I think this will be a great experience for myself and my smaller sister.
    And other good news, I also bought some young bantams for the project. 1 BB red cockerel, and a pair of whites/pyle. These guys are just called costa rica bantams here. Any small (And a wide range in small; Anything smaller than standard size) chicken that has a game look is just called a "costa rica" bantam. Not sure why costa rican. My goal is to actually breed and create a standard for these so called costa ricans by line breeding :eek:)

    I've honestly been wanting to post pictures but I can't seem to find my camera's SD card. But I will sure to start up a new thread in the Breeds section if I can find it. :)
