Do you remember that single chick that hatched way back in April? Well Chickster is getting big now and rather pretty we think.
Here she is with her Mum Cup Cake. She’s a lovely deep brown colour with flecks of gold and caramel and dark brown fluffy feathers on her feet.
Yes we are still hoping Chickster is a she… I’d go so far as to say I am almost positive she is a hen. She doesn’t seem big enough to be a rooster and she hasn’t got the huge drumstick legs that her father has. She’s kind of narrow and petite with only a hint of comb beginning to develop.
I’d really like her to be a hen. Another egg layer would be excellent – especially considering we have not had an egg from our hens in more than two months!
So what’s your guess… Hen or Dinner?
