My japanese pullet Streamer is nesting ontop of Delilah, Alice and Dizzy. They three are younger and will sit down, not under the light, but close. They sleep together but will not remain huddled too long. Streamer goes and nestles herself ontop of them and poofs out her wings, covering them. They situate themselves and sleep. She looks like a momma hen over babies. Is this normal?
 

Love my Critters!

Same sort of thing happened here last night. I have 4 EE's and 4 Silkies that are about 6 weeks old and one of the EE's sits on top of my silkies and fluffs up. The silkies are so much smaller than she is and I think she is trying to take care of them. It really is cute.
