"An expression of surprise crossed Bernice's face as she found, much to her astonishment, that after seven long weeks of hoping, she now had eight chicks, when just moments before there had been none. She rose, puffed herself up, and reveled in the occasion!"

Mama and (surprise) chicks doing well this morning.

She was very persistent and wouldn't get out of broody mode even though i tossed her off the nest several times a day, locked her out, etc. Had a stroke of genius to put the meat bird chicks under Mrs. Persistent Bernice, and thus both parties are satisfied! :)
