I have to say I have a few favorites. Here is one of them.
She/he is an unknown. Hatched from one of the eggs I got from Three Graces Farm, the only one with feathered legs from her. When I asked her what chickens she had with feathered legs, she told me she had a brahma that was eaten by a raccoon a while ago, perhaps we had her last egg? I hope it is, as I LOVE brahmas. But I really can't add to my flock. My chickens are in my back yard and I can only have so many. My coop will only hold so many. But, maybe, just maybe I could add another? Or maybe two? Hmmmm
Here are my two Black Copper Marans. It appears that at least one is a rooster.
Flower is still doing a wonderful job of mothering the chicks. She doesn't eat until they are full and she is always available for a warm up under her belly. Ever time I pick up the chicks their crops are stuffed full, theses babies eat constantly. I suppose you would have to consume a lot of calories to maintain their growth rate.
We continue to have so much fun and enjoyment from these babies. I am looking forward to doing this again! :)
