    Here are my girls that are sharing duties with their chicks. The chicks are 2 days old, and 1 is only a day old. Somehow the stork snuck an extra chick into the group.

    I think there are 8 chicks total. 3 blues and 5 black. They are all different crosses

    Oh, adorable! I love co-broodies, they're so funny and cute. [​IMG] (I have six co-broodies in a pile in the corner of the henhouse right now, haha!) Congratulations on the little chicks! I'm sure your two girls will take good care of them.

    You and me both. That would be a riot! How do you come out alive when you try to feed them?

    UPDATE!!! Stork snuck another one in there this morning. I think there are about 9, maybe 10 total.
