Storm coming through just now and Izzy Lou, our buff silkie hen, and her three babies were in the tractor. Wind rolled the tractor over, freeing all four of them. We were headed out to the barn to bring everyone in, and saw Izzy and her babies waiting by the barn door, which had blown shut. I ran to get the light wire pen they are in when they are in the barn at night, brought it to her, and opened the door. In she marched, calling her babies, who all filed in behind her! Closed the door and back in to the barn they went, safe and sound. ! The hens know the pens provide protection for them and their chicks. We always keep moms and babies in a pen til the babies are big enough to at least have a chance, and lots of times the moms don't want to leave the safety of the pen when we finally do let them out to free range.
