    Her's a picture of my hen Lady Madonna with her five chicks age 4 weeks. At night they still snuggle with her. I am wondering how these chicks will be different than the ones raised without moms. Will they still recognize her as mom a year from now?

    Wow, she's pretty, and looks like a great Mom!
    Don't know about the 'Mom' after a year question, but I have heard that some hens develop bonds with others, so, who knows?
    Best of luck with your little flock!
