Porcelain family

 While my cousin was here I decided that we should try and get some photos of how fast my porcelain chick is growing and and since there were a few extra hands we thought we should get his parents in the photo as well, this is Platinum the dad Silver Mist the mom and my Porcelain chick who we named Image because he looks so much like his dad did at that age and has the same personality as his mom.
 This is Image who is now about two months old , and at first I thought he wouldn't make it , but so far he is doing great and is turning out almost exactly like his dad , if you want to compare scroll down where there is a photo of his dad at about the same age.
 This is his dad Platinum , who will fiercely guard the hens from dogs  who try to attack and most of the time they get scared off and go away,  he's also one off the most beautiful roosters I have .

this is his mom Silver Mist who he gets his personality from, Silver Mist has had a great personality since she was a chick, which she seemed to pass on to Image , whenever I go out to the pen she is always there at the door waiting for me to pet her and and when I walk around the pen feeding and watering them she follows me around, and since she has no fear of me and loves being held she is going to be my fit and show hen for this year.
And finally this is Platinum at about 3 months old who if you scroll up looks almost identical to Image who is basically an image of his dad.


  1. This is exactly what I would look for in a blog post about a breed. Photos showing the breed and the offspring at different ages. Image is a very good bird, and you are so observant, a trait needed in the breeding and showing of poultry. Good job Bugs, than-you.I am looking forward to seeing how well Image does for you, but also how well Image does for himself and his off-spring.

  2. Nice post and great photos! Thanks for sharing this.

  3. Bugs, I really love the names that you've picked out for your chickens. I think they are very fitting for your beautiful birds!
