jumper the amazing dark cornish

meet jumper
the wonderkin fearless dark cornish
hen? rooster? don't know yet but either way this one is a keeper

i am having a great time with the dark cornish
they have cheery personalities, lots of energy, a good curious sense about them, they are light on their feet and quite beautiful to boot. this is pure bred group. they are doing quite well and looking super healthy so i have decided to make a go at rearing the next round of cornish here at the hippychick homestead rather than order chicks from an outside hatchery. the mommy dark cornish are said to be attentive mothers and good sitters so why not?

aha! i hear the call of opera kitty - time to switch gears
guess who's not in charge around here?
yup you guessed it, me!
imagine that

Hello Hippychick!
I'm new to your blog but I will definitely be coming back for more. Looks like we have similar interests. Check mine out sometime (things have been kind of dull over here but now that it is getting warmer out I will have more to write about).
Anyway, I wanted to let you know that your photos and your blog are great!
