Hatch-a-Long Pullet at Ten Weeks

Willow 7916

Meet Willow, she was hatched back in April. She certainly has grown! She’s one of two fertile eggs put under a first time broody Silkie. A trial run so to speak, hoping the hen would follow through with her duties as a Mom to be. Obviously it was a success and I’ll use her again when it’s not so hot.
July in Phoenix the temperatures are 110-116, definitely not suitable for hatching eggs! I tried it once, a total fail.
Willow is a barnyard mix, all I know for sure is the hen was an Ameraucana, the green egg made that I.D. pretty simple. Look at those yellow legs, she almost glows in the dark. ha ha!
Can you believe both chicks turned out to be girls? That hardly ever happens. Lucky me!
