Pixie is the Peruvian Basket hen my Speckled Sussex hatched from an egg from Kermit Blackwood. 
A Cuckoo Marans towers over petite Pixie.
She's a vigorous young hen now, and she caught my eye as she was enjoying her dust bath the other day

The sandy soil in our yard is perfect for dirt baths. The other hens enjoy them, too.
Here's the Speckled Sussex and the Ancona.
They can make space for any number. Here's the Blue Laced Red Wyandotte and the Ancona, her comb now back to its full bright glory, with a Welsummer between them.
Top to bottom: Speckled Sussex, Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, Welsummer, Ancona.
Blondie, the White Dorking, takes an independent spot.
