We have moved both hens into separate large dog crates with waterers and chick starter and a bit of hay for a nesting spot. They sure love on their chicks!
Here's some photos for those of us that love these little balls of fluff. We don't know exactly what cross breeds these are yet, just what the hen was...we definitely have one chick from the Brahma rooster "Mr. Bean"... it's huge!
|We put mess up to protect them and keep them all in the nesting area|
|See, she laid an egg. Almost everyday. These eggs will be Partridge Cochin/White silkie mix|
|The 5th one must be hiding, but aren't they sweet?|
|Getting tired of posing for pictures|
|They are SO incredibly soft, and yes, we love on them too!|
|1 of Licorice's little eggs is black like her. She's a mix breed bantam herself.|
|All moved into a larger pen for the time being.|
