Hello from Houston!

Hello, my name is Karen and I am a new linnie owner, though I think of them as more of a family member than something I own.

I have Pippin who is a single dilute turquoise male. He's about 3 months old and today I brought home a cremino hen that's about 4 months. The breeder thinks it's a hen, but s/he hasn't been DNA'd yet. I don't really care either way, but the breeder says he gets 95% cremino hens out of his pair. She is still nameless at this point.

Here's a couple of bad pics I took. The new one thinks she's a bat. She even sleeps that way.

Thanks Petro, I can never remember the right name. The parents are single dilute cock and double dilute hen, both turquoise. And yes, I know that's not the right names :-)
