How long will a hen raise her chicks? - Page 2

post #11 of 12

I have a hen that still feeds her chicks even though they are bigger than she is! They even try to sleep under her at night (unsuccessfully).

I have a hen that is still mothering and the chicks will be 3 months next week. She's not overly aggressive about defending them though, so hopefully she'll stop soon and get back to laying. I hope she goes broody again though, she's a really good mom.
