This is Whirley Comb and her chicks. She is the last of our original black and gold bannie girls. I do love these little chickens! I don't even know if she still lays any eggs but she loves to hatch babies! She will still go broody 3 times a year and hatch out a little family!
She hatched out 6 jumbo eggs! She never looses a chick either!
Our Orpingtons will go broody occasionally and if they do manage to hatch a chick or two they never manage to raise them,they disappear.
I rarely even bother to try eggs under my big hens any more. These little bannie mommas out do them by a chicken mile!
Whirley Comb says she has had enough of this paparazzi treatment! Can't a little black hen have her breakfast in peace! She takes her chicks and says,"Talk to the tail feathers lady!"
