    This can happen right? Even though she tries nesting them underneath her...shes just too small to fit both chickies lol

    Well the littlest ones will always try to bury under the bigger ones. I have a 2 day old silkie sleeping under 3 day old sussex. Cute!

    LOL yeah xD it was just shocking to me because my buff is way older than the 2 day old silkie, and EE. At first i thought shed attack them because doesnt that happen when people try to introduce new chickies to the flock? I have nine 5-6 week chickens, and shes the only one who took a liking to them.
