Norbert and Mars

Norbert is quite the little king of his domain! He’s such a sweet boy and really takes good care of his ladies!


Norbert: Norbert, the resident satin paint silkie rooster of Buckaboo Farm, is just the coolest little dude!  He’s super sweet and snuggly, but takes his job as a rooster seriously.  He takes good care of his ladies, protecting them, showing them where to find food, and ushering them into the coop at night.  When the girls start piping out their egg song Norbert likes to join in on the cacophony.  He’s really just adorable, and his plumage is fabulous!  He came from the very talented Gloria at California Silkie Chickens Ranch. Norbert lives in the silkie pen with other paint, blue, white, black, and partridge silkie hens, but he also comes in the house sometimes to hang out with Darius, my diabetic alert dog! In case you’re wondering, yes, he is named for Norbert, the Norwegian Ridgeback!



Mars: Mars is the OG silkie hen at Buckaboo Farm. She comes from an talented and ethical breeder in Northern California (Alchemist Farm), and is both beautiful and sweet! She loves to hatch and nurture her babies, and although she will allow humans to handle her eggs and babies, Mars will fiercely defend them from the other chickens. Her beautiful crest inspired the name Mars, in honor of Bruno! Mars is in the same breeding pen as Norbert, and we can’t wait to see how their babies turn out! Norbert has a dominant white gene, and Mars has a dominant partridge gene, so we could end up with a really cute variety! I expect some of their babies to be silked, and some to be satin!
