I’ll tell you what, Peeper, the one we hatched from a chick, has blossomed into a great beauty. She’s almost full grown, and could start laying in February.
She inherited a lot of shiny feathers from her dad, Bruce. Some of the ones on her wings are bluish, while the rest glow green. She also got a really pretty double comb from her dad. And I guess she got his height.
She also got her dad’s ear tufts. They are so cute. With her white feathers at the base of her tail, she is spectacular
From Buttercup, her mom, Peeper got the beautiful patterned brown feathers on her head and body. She should also lay dark eggs, and I’m hoping Bruce will have made them green. In any case, I’m happy with her robustness and tenacity. She handles the cold well.
Click those images to see her glory. By the way, photographing chickens is hard. They are busy animals.
I just wanted to share the happiness raising just one hen from an egg. Thanks to Star for setting on her.
