My 7 month old buff mix has taken it upon herself to care for the silkie/Leghorn peeps I recently added to my coop. They are 6 weeks old, its literally adorable. It was so heartwarming to see. She hasn't layed any eggs yet, but she's all broody to these new peeps. Could that be a sign that she will start laying soon?I checked her pelvic bones and they have widened considerably this past week.
