Look how big the Demon Twins got! They are 9 months & 23 days old today & I’m continually proud & delighted with the way they turned out. They really did get the best, personality & physical traits wise, from Odysseus & the Ithakē ladies. While debating on whether I want to spend money of buying Ayam Cemani eggs for a March hatch, I’ve been thinking of trying to get a few more like these 2. However, if I really wanted to make them an actual breed, I should have put Memnoch together with the Ithakē ladies & Mercury in with Odysseus. I guess that’s how you get a better chance of getting the traits of the breed to be consistent. I’m kinda working backwards if I hatch from them this spring since I would be hatching more demon siblings the Ithakē Flock & more Quillbacks from Mem & Mer. Something to think about if I want to try hatching again this year.

Anyhow, even though I didn’t really do anything except incubate them, I feel like these two are my best art project since the car accident. They ended up with mohawks & fluffy cheeks & a chill personality (with humans, pretty sure Memnoch would still try killing Odysseus if they were put together again) from their moms & the silver laced colouring & the similar tail feather traits from their dad. Who would have guessed that chickens (& later peafowl) would be the main thing that helped keep me from ever sinking too far into recovery depression. I mean, I’ve always loved taking care of animals, I just never thought birds would be something I’d end up taking care of. Not much you can do when you get adopted by a stray tiny rooster & a stray large peacock but learn how to take care of them the best you can. They even made Toki & Arya better & slightly more patient with other animals that aren’t other dogs. Well, they never tried or succeeded in eating any of the chicks or birds & they don’t try to eat the rabbits anymore either, so I think that’s an improvement in them since the birds showed up.
