I know right, what you said! He's gonna want to strangle me!I know he has looked in the bin and the bator. He must just have me on censor!!!!

So i thin I have it don for sure this time. The 2 ligher ones have to be nhr's. The face is red, single comb ranges from small to large. The colors are axact, but same as the buckeyes. Just diff comb than them. Wow, these 3 breeds are like identical! Now, my dark girl must be a rir. She's way sweeter than the 2 trouble makers! Boy that one though. This is what I want to do with her at moments!

Think it's mean, immagine this up in your face every day, haha. JK! She does have some major persionality! I tell you she has a plan for me. Something? It's only me!!!!!!

Oh, other chick is almost done. But I HAVE to try and get some sleep. Let's see if I can pull it off, lol!

I just discovered cochins in my attempt to figure out the breed of my cream chicks...I WANT! They are so pretty!

So I'm pretty sure our little butter chicks are buff orpingtons.

Check out mine, granted they are kinda rescues. I believe they are my true calling chicken, lol. With a list of fun ones too in the barnyard!

VERY nice flock BTW Hilary!!!!
I know, close to 500 pics. Cochins are the newer additions. The littles at the top, most cochins.

He in the bin on the hossy side and pulling one HECK of a fit! wow it's a loud one. Must be one of Mrs. Purdys, hehe, he loud tuckus. It'a another blk with yellow/cream accents. Same again. Another cochin though!!!! Yipee! I just wanna keep them all, haha. Yea right. Can you immagine the poo clean up. Good grief the noise. Gonna wake the boys! All the other chicks on the other side are getting po'd and pecking/looking over the barrier. Can't see over it and they are irritated.

Re: Chicken Moma chat thread. Share, Q&A, all things chicken! <3 October <3

ok pretty sure I have one of the smallest flocks among the mamas now. Sounds like we all have pretty mixed flocks, fun!

Wow, Sarah I can't believe they lived through all that! Ok so I was looking at your pics and some of the babies are clean legged and some have fluffed legs. are the non feather legged the half-ee babies or something else? I'm confused now.

Liz-They areeither half Booboo chicken, or lot their momas feather less legs? I need a good site to read genetics on chickens if anyone has one!!!!!

So I sat with the girls the am when I let them out. I have to say I'm shocked how much further they have changes. My dark red has a 100% pea comb! BUCKETE all the way! The other 2 have these tail feathers that just confuse me further. The top of the tail really extends out and swoops down like 2 finger tips. The other has that big buckeye fan. I tried to take pics but it was still kinda dark.

The 2 chicks hatched last night are dry, trying to fluff. One still in the bowl but seems like it can come out soon.

I'll upload the pics in a min.
