She is a Buff Orpington. I put Buff Orpington fertilized eggs under her - no rooster here-4 hatched on Feb 17-18. I have 6 Americaunas and three of them are Wheaten. The hatchery said that they hatched on Feb 17. I was thinking that since they are similar in coloring, it would be better to put them under her since the others are pretty distinctive. So, ten chicks all together?? She will be able to care for them-no problem-if she accepts them
She is a great Mom. I just wish that she would take those babies into the coop at night. She started taking them out on Sunday.
Any advice? Try to make the coop entrance chick assessable. As the chicks get older going in and out won't be a problem.
